Oliverhill Jimmy Section McLaren Vale Shiraz

This wine has not been in Missouri for 10 plus years? It was always a favorite. We finally received some of this great single vineyard McLaren Vale Shiraz after such a long time!
We scored all 7 cases that came to Missouri, if my math is correct, that is 7% of the whole allocation for the United States!

2019 Oliverhill Jimmy Section McLaren Vale Shiraz...$29.99
Only 300 cases made and only 100 cases imported

Dark Purple, Deep-pitched, primary black and blue fruits on the perfumed nose, along with suggestions of cola, candied flowers and exotic spices. Plush and expansive on the palate, offering sweet cassis, cherry cola and mulberry flavors that tighten up and turn spicier with aeration. Finishes very long and smooth, with fine-grained tannins and a resonating blue fruit note. 20% new French barrels.
Rated 93/100 Vinous Media
