From the Heart of McLaren Vale
The Vinaceous Snake Charmer Shiraz 2015 is sourced from select old vine Shiraz vineyards in the heart of McLaren Vale. While these old vines are hand harvested and made using traditional techniques, basket pressed and open fermented.
While maturing 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 color with bright hues. With perfumed, lifted berries and spice on the nose.

And finishes with soft, long and silky tannins and toasty oak nuances.
