I do this blog for fun, the wines here are some of the very few I can be bothered to write up. The cream has risen.

Madeleines McLaren Vale Shiraz 2007

This has got a really great nose, it's voluptuous and full like Barbera Streisand's konk but sexy as hell like Catherine Zeta-Jones' sculptured schnoz. Not sure I would have picked this blind as a straight McLaren Vale Shiraz as it's got a little of that cooler climate style to it, ie. some pepper and spices with a few herbs.

If I was trying to be picky I'd say the 15% is showing a bit, but considering this ain't a fruit bomb and not remotely jammy then I'm not sure that's much of a negative really.

Recommended++ and **** and I'm really looking forward to trying this again in 2-3 years.

  1. Tried this again Aug 2013, rating upgraded to HRec, and still could do with 3 more years but drinking very well now. Lovely wine.
