Shirvington Cabernet Sauvignon 2008 750ml, McLaren Vale


Back on track after the 2007 crop failed to provide a viable vintage, the 2008 Shirvington Cabernet Sauvignon is sure to please. It was good to see that Shirvington recovered in style with a superb Cabernet Sauvignon.

Expert Reviews

Robert Parker's Wine Advocate - 92 pts - Composed of 94% Cabernet Sauvignon and 6% Shiraz, the 2008 Cabernet Sauvignon was 100% barrel fermented and aged for 12 months in 60% new oak and 40% one-year-old oak, with 55% American and 45% French barrels. It presents a deep garnet color and aromas of black currant cordial, black cherry preserves and dried plums over spice box, cloves, pencil lead, toast plus a whiff of lavender. Very full bodied and richly fruited in the mouth, the generosity of spicy berry flavors is well supported by a medium to firm level of very finely grained tannins and very crisp acid, finishing long and layered. Drinking nicely now, it should cellar to 2019+. - Feb 2012
