2007 Coates The LBV Shiraz 500ml McLaren Vale – The LBV has been made from low yielding (under one tonne an acre) McLaren Vale organic grapes vinified in the traditional Duoro style. Flavour, tannin and sugar ripe grapes were picked at 14.7 Baume to retain a vibrant balance of flavours. Great Vintage Port styles are difficult wines to make, balancing spirit, acidity, tannin, sugar and flavour. When all of the elements are in balance there is a poise, delicacy and harmony that rival any of the world’s great wines.
Deep red in colour, perfumed aromas of cassis and plum fruits are accompanied by aniseed and black earth. The opulent black fruit and licorice flavours are given further complexity by a hint of exotic spice; a soft, finely grained tannin backbone provides grip on the lingering finish. Whilst appealing now The LBV will drink well for another 20-30 years.
