James Haselgrove 2014 Futures Shiraz (6 bottles)

Regular price $360.00 $480.00

Available: In stock

The Futures Shiraz was first made in 1984 as a rich, full bodied Shiraz wine style that is very suitable for cellaring yet maintains drinkability. This 2014 wine is the 25th release after maturation in French & American oak, a small proportion of which are new. 

This wine has lovely medium to long term potential which will augment the savoury fruit characters expressed by this terroir in McLaren Vale. 

Colour: Dark purple & magenta with an opaque hue.

Nose: Blueberry & Mulberry fruit with cedary oak. Hints of licorice, cola with a distinct black pepper note. A little lifted by alcohol but this will settle as fruit characters become stronger. 

Palate: Full bodied  dark fruit notes with stony minerality and warm peppery finish. Crisp acidity with even tannin and persistence on the palate. 

Potential: This vintage has medium to long term potential for aging (8-15 years). Sealed under DIAM cork. Ideally decant on opening and allow to breathe for a hour or two. 

Vintage: Despite a heatwave during the early part of harvest, this wine after some hang time developed strong  and distinctive ‘terroir’.
