Vinaceous Snake Charmer McLaren Vale Shiraz 2015
The 2015 Snake Charmer is sourced from select old vine Shiraz vineyards in the heart of McLaren Vale; these old vines are hand harvested and made using traditional techniques, basket pressed and open fermented. The wine is matured in 2 – 3 use French & American oak as selected by Vinaceous Winemaker Mike Farmilo at Chapel Hill for 12 – 14 months.
The result is an exceptional, deep purple & vivid in colour with bright hues - with perfumed, lifted berries and spice on the nose, intense black fruits, dark chocolate and mocha notes across the mid palate; wonderfully rich, layered and textural; this wine literally coats the mouth - and finishes with soft, long and silky tannins and toasty oak nuances. The 2015 Snake Charmer Shiraz can be enjoyed in its youth and can be cellared for up to 8 years and a perfect accompaniment to char-grilled meats, pork & fennel sausages and American style BBQ’s.
