Hand Made Shiraz is one of Mcguigans top wines with grapes sourced from premium sites within the Langhorne creek region of South Australia. Hugely expressive wine with dark berry fruit intermingled with peppery spice. The palate is voluptuous with rich plum, cherry and chocolate. The finish is long and velvety smooth with well-integrated tannins. Excellent now but has the potential to develop further in bottle for up to 10 years.
