Yes, we are still in renovation hell, but at least the outline of our cellar is beginning to take shape ๐Ÿ˜
This wine is knockout. The Aussies are coming back, strong. This comes off like a Napa cab. Good tannins and complimentary acid, which frame up a super example of Shiraz. At $15 per, itโ€™s a no-brainer ๐Ÿ˜ƒ

Little Ox McLaren Vale Shiraz

A very tasty and fun Shiraz. Tart, juicy, and firm. Dry, with some enjoyable tannins. Give it time to breathe and youโ€™ll be rewarded with a delicious wine that would go well with grilled meats, steak, or a decadent chocolate dessert. Would definitely buy again. โ€” 10 days ago

McLaren Vale Shiraz Viognier 2015

Give it a little time to breath. A hint of spice on the nose with tree fruit and maybe some floral in there. Black fruit on the palate with nice acidity and gentle tannins. Medium bodied. Nice lingering finish. Iโ€™d drink a bottle of it by itself (if hangovers didnโ€™t exist). โ€” 14 days ago

McLaren Vale Shiraz 2004

Thick with high alcohol - and not subtle in the slightest. But wonderful dark fruit aromatics and cassis flows on the palate - with a big plate of short ribs and good company I was very happy indeed. โ€” 20 days ago

d'Arry's Original McLaren Vale Shiraz Grenache 2013

Needed time in the glass. Solid value.

Tannins from both grapes play well together giving depth and interest without being overbearing.

Pleasant mouth feel and the right amount of acidity. I can understand why this is a staple.
