VINTAGE:

McWilliam’s Single Vineyard Hilltops Shiraz

With a philosophy to source top quality fruit from a single, meticulously managed vineyard, McWilliam’s Single Vineyard delivers distinctly elegant & balanced wines. The 2015 vintage of the McWilliam’s Single Vineyard Shiraz came from blocks K4 and R2 of the Barwang vineyard attended to by our own Chirs Coddington.

“The Single Vineyard range is an exciting development for McWilliam’s winemaking. Being site specific they showcase individual quality and personality, delivering wines of nuance and detail. This enables our viticulture and winemaking teams to push the quality and learn more about the terroir of each vineyard.” Andrew Higgins – McWilliam’s Chief Winemaker.

REGION

Hilltops, NSW

AROMA

Violets, plum, raspberry with meaty, peppery spice.

PALATE

Savoury, tight and complex. Only medium bodied but concentrated with plum and blueberry fruit overlaying whole-bunch spice and regional peppery characters. Has a grainy, focused core of tannins that give the wine length and drive. Bottle age has given a rich chocolatey character to the tannin and savoury meaty nuances to the finish.
