These wines have strength, intensity, and glorious grape tannins, which wind the palate together, almost like a double helix. The complex structure pulls you straight through.
On the nose they have a unique characteristic, which can't be clearly identified, but can only be described as Koomilya.
They illustrate what I'm hoping modern McLaren Vale Shiraz will be, which harps back to a tradition of what it looked like in the 1960s, without all the artifice of winemaking." - Steve Pannell

2013 DC Block Shiraz
Very old school aromas that are more about earth (wet earth), leather, rust, dried herb, charcuterie, and old furniture. The fruit is complex and shows pomegranate, cherry, prunes, and some black berries.
Intense, dense, complex, with great attack and precision. Long, even, and integrated.
The most profound thing about this wine is its finish. The tannins are majestic, ripe, and moreish.
A beautiful wine that screams of McLaren Vale.
Oodles of black cherry and berries, pomegranate, hints of licorice, cola, wild herbs, and old furniture.
Medium to full bodied with a velvety seductive mouth feel. Subtle, generous, and long tannins that are most obvious after the wine is swallowed.
