Can John Wade's wines become any more popular? Is it the name or, perhaps, the eye-catching label? No, wrong both times - it's the wine. Now with latest screwcap closure.
The Shiraz is a terrific, all-purpose grape that grows well just about everywhere. Cooler climates give way to more peppery notes while warmer climates yield richer and more generous flavours. The primary fruit characters are spice, cinnamon, raspberry, dark cherry, mulberry, blackberry, black pepper, plum and chocolate. Secondary characters are mocha, coffee, prune, meaty, savoury and leather.
Ageing Potential: 5-7 Years
Tasting Note: The expression of Shiraz from the temperate Margaret River region combines the ripeness and opulence of warmer climates with the spice and elegance typical of cooler ones. Our Single Vineyard Series of Leston Shiraz from Margaret River and Scottsdale Shiraz from the Great Southern are great examples of the regional differences from these two grape growing regions of Western Australia.
