A capacious shiraz, rich and enveloping with its warmth. Plenty floral. Pulpy and grapey. Quintessentially regional, with blue to dark fruit accents, mocha-coffee-bean-bitter choco. tannins plied by the extract of fruit and ample use of oak. A long peppery linger, warming the recesses of the throat. A wine, very well crafted, for those who like largesse.

Sourced from a lower-yielding section of the same vineyard as the GAM Shiraz and matured in 100% new oak, the 2017 Savitar Shiraz is tighter and more concentrated, yet it still remains essentially approachable. Hints of toasty oak frame bold blackberry and blueberry flavors in a wine that's full-bodied and lush without being unstructured. Soft tannins dominate the long, mouthwatering finish.

Destemmed to open fermenters, 14 days on skins, pressed to new and 1yo French hogsheads for 18 months maturation, every barrel tasted for selection. The most complete tannin profile from oak and vineyard , with blueberries dipped in dark chocolate flavours. Totally compelling in the context of McLaren Vale style.

The 2013 Liandra Syrah is a bit restrained on the nose, showing hints of mocha and berries. But it's full-bodied and lush on the palate, delivering plenty of pleasure.
