The 2018 Haselgrove Catkin is an ink-black McLaren Vale Shiraz. The nose—full of dark fruit, spice and vanillin oak—puts you on notice for a super-concentrated, mouth-coating palate. A catkin—the cascading flower of the hazel tree—is delicate. The Catkin of Haselgrove is anything but. Which is just fine because we don’t look to McLaren Vale for wallflower wines. You’ll enjoy these.
Your bonus in this dozen is an upgrade to the 2017 Penfolds St Henri Shiraz under cork. What an upgrade! It is a quintessential expression of this time-honoured wine, a Shiraz with a just kiss of Cabernet Sauvignon. Perfumed and lively with the promise of a long life ahead, this is a masterpiece that delivers on your highest expectations.
