Wine Note

Magpie Estate 'The Election'

First release since 2010. As ever itís a barrel selection of our best lots. Coming from 3 vineyards, 2 in Western Ridge and 1 barrel of Eden Valley Shiraz in the blend for complexity. Aged for c22 months in a combination of 300 litre Hogsheads and 475 Puncheons. The blend ended up being all new oak barrels 75% French, 25% American.
Itís a voluptuous rich Barossa Shiraz, dark berry and plum fruit with lots of spice, some plain chocolate and toasty mocha oak. Long and well balanced, made to age, but has a hedonistic appeal that will mean it drinks on release.
200 dozen bottled March 2018
