Flegenheimer Brothers Reserve Red 2012


SKU 859367003496


Sourced from Hammerschlag’s McLaren Vale vineyard which is a great site for Shiraz, the vineyard is also planted with Petite Sirah. A varietal that is naturally higher in acid, tannin and color, thereby enhancing the wine’s mineral character and providing structure to the blend.

Wine AdvocateA blend of Shiraz and Petite Sirah, the very deep purple-black colored 2012 Reserve Red Wine exudes aromas of warm blackberries and crushed black plums with hints of mulberries, black pepper, tree bark and charcoal. Very big and full-bodied, it fills the palate with warm berry preserves flavors and just a touch of pepper that is offset by chewy tannins and up-lifting acidity. It finishes just a little hot.

VinousInky purple. Sweet, expansive aromas of cassis, blackberry, bitter chocolate and musky flowers. Lush, round and broad, offering rich black and blue fruit flavors that pick up a spicy character with air. Round, ample and fleshy wine with strong finishing punch, good fruity persistence and supple, slowly building tannins.
