Blackstrap Selection XVI McLaren Vale Cabernet Shiraz 2017
Deep, dark, rich and intense ... that's Blackstrap!
The Shiraz shows all that inky, chocolatey, deep black fruit richness the region is known for, alongside a punchy whack of Cabernet. A good dose of oak tempers the richness, and fine tannins smooth it out even further, so it's drinking well now. But it's definitely an ultra-velvety, mouthcoating, powerful red that you need to approach carefully!
