“Meet Red Knot’s Big Brother”. Crafted from Shiraz grown across the Davey Estate Vineyard, the Davey Brothers Shiraz is an outstanding wine at an accessible price, reflecting the lifestyle of McLaren Vale – vibrant, colourful and welcoming.
Vibrant, deep purple-red in colour. Concentrated blackberry aromas are highlighted with hints of chocolate earth, heritage roses and roasted nuts. Textured tannins and subtle oak focus the luscious compote of dark berry fruit into the long finish of this medium to full-bodied estate grown Shiraz.
Deep garnet in colour with vibrant magenta bubbles. Aromas of concentrated blackcurrant with hints of liquorice, spice and dark cherries. Creamy bubbles and luscious sweetness envelop the plump blackberry mid palate, which is enhanced with hints of savoury development. The long sweet fruit finish is balanced with fine tannin and acidity.
This is a non-vintaged wine blended from a number of years of Shiraz to create complexity and consistency in the style.
Deep magenta in colour. Perfumed cherry, redcurrant, toffee apple and woody herb aromas lift from the glass. Chewy, moreish tannins envelop the dark cherry mid-palate and define the savoury finish.
A modern, versatile, medium-bodied wine, perfect for sharing with friends over tapas.
Vibrant purple-red. The Shiraz, grown on loamy clay, contributes the dark fruit of blackberries and mulberries to the blend, whilst the hand-picked, old bush vine Grenache (grown on deep sand over clay) adds rosy floral and savoury notes. Small batch open fermentation and maturation in older oak ensures the proven synergy of these two, equally matched, McLaren Vale Local Heroes.
In the highly acclaimed 2016 vintage a couple of special rows of Davey Estate Shiraz were left to concentrate until late in the season. At the optimum designated moment of fermentation, grape spirit was added to lock in the sweetness and preserve the wine.
This fortified Shiraz will reward careful cellaring. The sweet dark compote of fruit flavours is enhanced with the spirit warmth, matching beautifully with coffee and chocolate or a selection of cheeses.
