    McLaren Vale, South Australia

    Picture of 2000 McLaran Vale 								Shiraz

    Mclaren Vale enjoys sandy loam soils and maritime climatic conditions which combine to produce fruit of exceptional quality. The area is perhaps best known for its Shiraz grape which ripens so perfectly under these conditions.

    The 2000 vintage will be remembered for its low summer rains that led to reduced yields but very high quality fruit. After pressing, the wine fermented in a mix of both French and American oak for 15 months before bottling. The resultant wine has a wonderful purple colour, strong aroma, and is well structured with a long firm finish.

    What more can i say? Well, I prob'ly will but just now I want more!!!

    If you can get some, you'll never be sorry!

    Ozzie, wait til you have the opportunity to taste mine - for the first time in my life I have made my own wine - and I think it taste much better then what ever I bought in the stores......

    When you are ever here, do try it... 14% alcohol made from grapes - blackberries - elderberries.

    My spousal unit really enjoys Ravenwood Shiraz.

    I'll be sure to tell him about this one.

    I've tried some of the Ravenswood wines and they're actually pretty nice for their price. Although I love the occassional Shiraz, my favorite red is either McGuigans Black Label Merlot (I think it's from Australia) or a nice Italian Amarone. Yummeeee!
