Overview

The McGuigan Cellar Select Shiraz is sourced from vineyards in the Hunter Valley region of New South Wales. The 2017 season is noted for producing quality red wine. Fruit grown on the Norlana vineyard in the Upper Hunter (57%) and from the Bainton Vineyard (43%) was used to produce this wine. Cool conditions throughout most of the growing season were coupled with dry hot conditions at the business end of the season. At harvest due to low crop loads the grapes had excellent varietal and regional characteristics as well as a very dense colour hue.

Palate

An intense full-bodied wine with soft fine-grained tannins, rich palate and good persistence. Strong Shiraz fruit flavours are complimented by a subtle underlay of tight grained oak.
