Oliverhill Red Silk Shiraz, McLaren Vale, Australia, 2011 (750ml)
Oliverhill Red Silk Shiraz displays complex fruit and sexy, silky tannins. Perhaps it's the old age and low yields of the vines, or maybe the special care and attention fruit receives in the winery. The essence of McLaren Vale lives in our wine-complex fruit and sexy, silky tannins. This is who Oliverhill is and they're not about to change! Enjoy!
"Deep purple black in color, the 2011 Red Silk Shiraz is scented of macerated black plums, crushed blackberries and black currants with underlying black pepper and Indian spice hints. Medium to full-bodied with plenty of youthful black berry and pepper flavors on offer in the mouth, it has a solid backbone of medium to firm grainy tannins and refreshing acidity, finishing with good length."
