Pertaringa Undercover Shiraz

Pertaringa Undercover Shiraz 2017

McLaren Vale, South Australia   |    750ml   |    14.5%
Pertaringa Undercover Shiraz has long held a reputation as one of Australia's most consistently brilliant red wines. Undercover Shiraz is named in recognition of McLaren Vale's history of supplying other regions with its finest red grapes - something that was done to improve the quality and richness of their wines.

The 2017 Pertaringa Undercover Shiraz is another fine example of McLaren Vale Shiraz; the palate is concentrated with plenty of black cherry and plum flavours that are supported by a velvety soft mouthfeel; the powdery, subtle tannins deliver further complexity. Another superb Shiraz that will only enhance the reputation of this much loved wine.

Story: The Undercover Shiraz is named in recognition of McLaren Vale's history of supplying other regions with our finest red grapes. Known as the mid palate of Australia, McLaren Vale fruit is well regarded for its ability to improve the quality and richness of wines from other regions.

Vintage: Spring and summer were cooler than normal with above average rainfall and the 2017 vintage happened much later than usual. The combination of those factors and dry weather for most of the harvest resulted in higher yields and excellent quality across regions.

Nose: The nose offers subtle aromas of plums and herbs with a trace of mint.

Palate: The palate is tight and textural with delightful flavours and elegant vanillin oak

Pairing: Try with venison loin dry rubbed with juniper berry and lavender served on braised cabbage with a blueberry and red wine glaze.
