Shingleback D Block Reserve Shiraz 2012
Shinglebacks are solidly built, prehistoric-looking (but harmless) lizards that sun themselves in this McLaren Vale vineyard, hence the
name. This harmonious shiraz has a nose suggesting dark berries, spices, flowers and earth, with a slightly gamy undercurrent. It’s rich and full flavoured, stylish and complex, with well-modulated tannin balance. Braised oxtail would match it perfectly.
