The Carnival of Love is an opulent celebration of McLaren Vale Shiraz. Fresh aromas of raspberry and plum, with hints of earthiness, create the intense nose, while the palate provides a full spectrum of flavors from cherry to mocha and spice. Exhibiting poise and balance, the lovely hints of oak reside as an undercurrent of fine tannins and subtle vanilla. The soft mouthfeel creates the sense of melted chocolate, yet the lingering finish of berry compote brings the wine to where Shiraz excels.
The grapes were grown on the Gateway vineyard in McLaren Vale, barrel fermented, and matured in 100% new American oak.
