Richard Hamilton Centurion McLaren Vale Shiraz 2017
97 Halliday points – again! "Ridiculously cheap for vinous treasure like this..." (Halliday)
Fruit for this majestic wine comes from a vineyard planted in 1892, one of the oldest in the McLaren Vale, and indeed the country. These ancient vines are anchored to some of the region’s best soils by their original rootstocks, and create a magnificent Shiraz regularly rated 95-97 points. “From vines planted in 1892 ... itself enough to command respect. And it doesn’t fail to deliver on the promise... Bright, fresh and vibrant. Dense, ripe and concentrated. Corseted by fine chalky tannins. The evenness in texture from start to finish is remarkable. Ridiculously cheap for vinous treasure like this... 97pts” (Halliday).
