Botham Merrill Willis Shiraz 2013, Mclaren Vale, South Australia
Grape variety, 100% Shiraz aged in oak for 28 months.
A deep rich red with touches of youthful violet hues. With a warm and inviting aroma. Initially liquorice, dark fruits and menthol come forward which opens up to reveal white pepper and dried herbs, fresh earth and savoury meats. The palate is well balanced from start to finish. Finely textured and structured with fresh dark berry fruit, spice, coffee and chocolate and finishes on a savoury fruit note.
Renowned Australian winemaker Geoff Merrill's collaboration with equally renowned English cricketers Ian Botham and Bob Willis, from the Mclaren Vale, an area renowned for producing some of the best Shiraz wines anywhere in the world.
