Hugh Hamilton The Rascal Shiraz

Hugh Hamilton Shiraz, 'The Rascal'. Mclaren Vale. A superb, big, powerful Shiraz. Bags of fruit very smooth, good body and balance. Great with food.

Out of stock

Shiraz flourishes in Mclaren Vale and the Hamiltons are particularly proud of this wine, as it's made with minimal intervention (by Aussie standards) as an expression ot the 'terroir'.

The wine is dark in colour with lots of ripe fruit on the palate. It has great mouth feel, it's very smooth and almost velvety on the tongue. Although very strong, the palate's not dominated by the alcohol, more enhanced by it.  If you like big powerful "Aussie Shiraz" this wine is very good and, a little suprisingly, a great accompaniment to food like BBQ or a spicey curry.
