Scarce Earth Chanticleer Single Vineyard Shiraz 2010

 

Intense, deep purple-crimson; only one hogshead (300 litres) of this quintessential McLaren Vale shiraz, with multiple layers of luscious plum and blackberry fruit, dark chocolate and supple tannins – a powerful affirmation of the value of organic viticulture.
