For the wine snob
My hunch was that the most ancient grape on the planet, Saperavi, would make for a unique union with McLaren Vale’s prized Shiraz. The elixir was covertly blended and like other ‘black operations’ a Pandora’s box of flavour was opened. A wine for KGB, CIA and civilians.
For the rest of us:
What is absolutely excellent about this wine is that they have successfully toned down the biggest and boldest of varietals with a little blending to create a very relaxed and silky wine out of something that is usually an “in your face wine.” Of course we know and love both styles. This wine was and is a real treat, best served with grilled meats and/or robust tomato sauce and friends!
