Tait Wines 2015 The Border Crossing 100% Basket Pressed Old Vines Shiraz (McLaren Vale)

This is a high octane McLaren Vale Shiraz, with a polished sheen that some will dig and others will run from. There's lots of plump plum and brambly berry aromas, with cloves and violets all blanketed in a dusting polish sheen. There's also nicely textured, leathery tannins that balance the tangy, ripe fruit. The oak is a bit drying and bitter, and the alcohol, at nearly 16%, is prominent. Christina Pickard
