Super-value Shiraz out of McLaren Vale, with artwork by the talented and sensitive artist Mel Kadel. The wine is a softer, McLaren Vale-style Shiraz with a focus on suppleness and elegance. Mel created four images for each vintage, although I made only one wine per vintage. Fortunately I was able to purchase some of the originals from Mel and still have them hanging in my home. Oprah featured this wine in her magazine.
