Clare Valley, South Australia
Clare Valley Shiraz punches way above its weight for flavour and sheer value. The Forager is all this and more. Top vintage.
The Castine Family vineyard is located at the warmer southern end of Watervale - a sub region of the Clare Valley. The resulting Shiraz is a little riper and richer then some of the cooler areas of Clare. Picked ripe and full of flavour then matured for 15 months in 1 -2 year old French oak. Ripe rich plummy and bitter dark chocolate flavours wrapped in firm tannins. This vintage should be a good one to put away for up to 6-8 years. Amazing value and sure to be snapped up quickly.
