      Characteristics

      Colour:

      Intense deep purple with a bright crimson hue.

       

      Nose:

      A complex nose of dark fruits, leather, cardamom,sandalwood and aged Jamon.

       

      Palate:

      The full-bodied palate is rich and generous. The use of extra fine grain French oak has produced a

      wine showing a lovely integration between the fruit, oak and tannin. An intriguingly complex array

      of flavours; wild dark berries , spices, cedar and coco powder. Completed by an excellent tannin backbone

      giving the wine structure, length and great aging potential.

      Our Reserve Shiraz represents the finest shiraz we can make, from the best Shiraz grapes we

      can grow on the DOWIE DOOLE Vineyards.

      It is made to showcase McLaren Vale shiraz with its classical, rich, generous characters entwined

      with fine tannins and new french oak.

      To protect our philosophy, the Reserve is made in very limited quantities, without compromise and

      only when vintage conditions allow for a supreme shiraz wine.

      Reviews & Awards

      95 points - Halliday Wine Companion - Outstanding

      "From Norm Doole's 41yo cali Road Vineyard at Tatachilla, crushed and destemmed,open-fermented, 20 days on skins,

      matured for 24 months in French hogsheads (50% new).At the apex of the DOWIE DOOLE range of wines, it screams McLaren

      Vale at the top of its voice, the mix of black chocolate and tannins combining to form a framework for the intense blackberry

      fruits of a full-bodied shiraz at the dawn of what will be a very long life." James Halliday
