2013 Lavina Elicere Shiraz Grenache McLaren Vale
The Elicere range features wines that display great elegance and finesse. These wines have been fastidiously crafted and styled to be sumptuous and expressive yet exquisite and refined. Fruit of the highest quality was carefully selected to produce wines that are a beautiful definition of the terroir of the region. Powerful but not too dominating the wines are perfectly balanced and restrained making them an excellent choice for pairing with any fine cuisine.
Deep rich purple with a crimson hue colour. The bouquet of this wine displays a demure sense of regal elegance with lifted aromatics including fresh raspberries, black cherries and redcurrants. Notes of crushed violets, spice and ginger blossom linger in the glass.
The palate is svelte in texture with vibrant fruit flavours of raspberries, redcurrants and black cherries. The savoury velvet tannin structure is long and impeccably balanced, supported with subtle oak and a superb natural acid structure that provides a layered and complex mouthfeel through to the finish.
Luscious and lively in its youth, this wine will continue to develop in complexity for 10 years. Store wine lying down at a constant temperature of 15-18 Degree Celsius. Decanting is recommended to open up the flavours and enhance the full appreciation of the wine.
