3 in stock
What a wine from leading Barossa winemaker Kym Teusner! Base wine comprises top shelf old vine single vineyard shiraz south of Tanunda followed by 2 years in French oak and 2 years on lees in bottle to create a fine and pesrsistent bead. More ish dry style and has the structure to age and develop for at least a decade. Forget the cranberry sauce. this is the perfect accompaniment to the roast turkey!
Kym Teusner says about this vintage … “This is our fourth release of the MC and with fans gathering in the wings we released the 2010 to an independent panel of judges and waited nervously for the result…96 points! Validation of our decision to only pick the best Barossa Shiraz vineyards for this wine. We tend to take it easy with the dosage also….we aim for a savoury, pure fruit driven style without any sugary trickery and cloying finish. With extended time on lees the resulting wine, I’m sure you will agree, is delicious drinking and will continue to improve in the cellar over the medium term.”
94 Points, James Halliday, Australian Wine Companion 2018 “The great ’10 season in the Barossa was blessed with all the plush black cherry and plum fruit and liquorice and yet medium-bodied restraint and definition that make it particularly endearing in a sparkling style. Kym Teusner has captured it impeccably, with supple allure, fine-grained structure, dark chocolate oak, creamy bead and lingering persistence. One of the great vintages for MC, and it’s only going to get better with a few more years in bottle.”
90 points, Campbell Mattinson, The Wine Front. “... soft and plush and, indeed, smashable. It tastes of ripe, sweet plums, leather, five spice and choc, though time in bottle has mellowed matters to the point where it impresses as seamless and supple, in the softest of ways. The flavours themselves are excellent.”
