Angels’ Share McLaren Vale Shiraz 2021 – 93 points
This wine is a brilliant first look at 2021 which is tracking to be an exceptional vintage showing both fruit richness and power with impressive complexity. Deep ruby in colour, it opens with brooding and enveloping aromas – dense blackberry, chocolate, liquorice and tar with a gentle oak backbone. It’s then dry and robust with lashings of dark fruits over a bed of firm tannins which support a long, fleshy finish. Very well pitched to enjoy over the next five years although you could probably leave it a little longer.
