Wine Description

Tasting Notes: Appearance: Deep purple ruby, semi-opaque. Aromas: Blackberry, raspberry, loganberry, fruity dark chocolate and hints of sweet spice. On the tongue the powerful body is marbled and wrapped in plush icing. The liqueur chocolate flavors reverberate decadent tones before the lights go out.

Winemaker's Notes

(From 2012 Vintage) South Australia is arguably one of the top shiraz-growing regions of the world. Within SA, the McLaren Vale and the Barossa are the most diverse and historic sub-regions with vines dating back to the 1830’s. The microclimates within these areas are what give Layer Cake Shiraz its complexity. For our Shiraz, we pull from vineyards in McLaren Vale and the Barossa Valley; from the sandy soiled blocks on the sea coast of Gulf St. Vincent, to the Terra Rosa based, tiny-berried wind-blown rolling hills in the Barossa Zone. The microclimates give us a broad array of flavors to blend into a complex, rich, full wine.

    Rating: 90/100 - As reviewed by Wine & Spirits Magazine on 10/09. The name gives it away. This is a rich, superripe wine that emphasizes its plush texture, layering fig, blueberry, sweet oak and black pepper in a finish that lasts. A primary, drink-it-right-now wine to open near steaks and charcoal.
