McPherson MWC Shiraz Mouvedre 2014
Rich, with elegant and supple tannins; this Rhone inspired wine is a lovely blend of cool-climate spicy Shiraz combined with mild climate full-bodied Shiraz finely tempered by the savoury tannins of Mourvedre. This is a bold, modern Australian wine exhibiting aromas and flavours of blackberry and spice. The rich and full palate is complemented by hints of French oak leading to a seamless finish. Great to drink young, however time will reward those with patience…
The MWC Shiraz Mourvedre is a wonderful partner to char grilled steak, rich red meat dishes and hearty pastas. Its wide appeal makes it a perfect dinner party wine. Also pairs well with dark chocolate.”
Wine & Spirits5% Mourvedre comes through in a little saddle leather and spice; 2% Viognier adds lifted, floral aromas. It's a pretty red color and a tight line of flavor, savory with notes of dried red currants and black olives. The tannic grip and fine weight make this a steal at the price."
James HallidayA 93/5% blend, plus 2% viognier; tank-fermented, but not co-fermented; matured between 6 and 12 months in French oak. An elegant, fresh medium-bodied wine, red fruits dominant, with superfine tannins and a light kiss of oak. Very good value, ready now."
Wine SpectatorDistinctive, with white pepper and fresh-cracked black pepper aromas. Black tea details accent the robust blackberry and plum flavors. Dense tannins. Drink now through 2026. 2,500 cases made."
