MVP Shiraz 2009

Varietal: Shiraz

Alcohol: 14.5%

DV7 (or Digs Vineyard Block 7) was established in 1941 and produces intense true varietal characteristics which carry through into this superb wine. Maturation in 100% water bent French oak for nearly 3 years. Viticulturist Dan Wright applies traditional and his state-of-the-art practices that consistently create fabulous foundation flavours that are ideal for this modern wine style.

Tasting notes:

A style shaped for fruit concentration more so varietal elegance. This 2009 pedigree brew is remarkably bound like a tight purple cabbage so wants and needs a fair splash of air for at least an hour or two. Aromatic dominance of spiced figs, pepper corns and cut cedar. The palate starts with a vibrant burst of dark berry fruits up front through a spiced Christmas cake middle to baked plums on the finish. Residual flavour length is truly remarkable.

$84.69 retail per bottle (6/case).
