Nose

This wine shows excellent integration of Shiraz fruit with the skilful use of oak, dark fruits and mixed spice. Lively aromas of creme brulee, melted toffee, and sour cherry tart.

Palate

This wine has a long, soft and juicy palate and lush mouth feel, bursting with nuances of blackberry, blueberry jam and liquorice. Medium-to-full body and a graceful, compelling, medium-length chocolate graham cracker, vanilla yogurt craisins, blood orange, and sandalwood finish with well-integrated, chewy tannins and light oak. A nice juicy, appetizing Shiraz which delivers an exceptional McLaren Vale experience.

Background

Grapes for "The Truant" have been sourced from vineyards from a variety of McLaren Vale's best sites. A tried and tested area for growing full-flavoured Shiraz, McLaren Vale has almost the perfect climate for grape growing: warm summers, low humidity, good winter rain and long autumns to ensure that grapes achieve ripeness, flavour, acid and balance.
