James Haselgrove 2017 McLaren Vale Futures Shiraz

Halliday 5 Star Winery

This wine has long term potential which will augment the savoury fruit characters expressed by this terroir in McLaren Vale. As we want this wine to mature gracefully in the bottle we have decided to use DIAM cork for quality cellaring that will still allow the wine to slowly develop complexity and regional nuances.
