2016 WINE SPECTATOR TOP 100: #30

"Bold, expressive, velvety and generous, with ripe cherry and plum flavors at the core. Complex details of vanilla bean, licorice, Earl Grey tea and gingerbread explode on the long finish. Drink now through 2030. 1,467 cases made. -MW" (WS)

Winery Notes:
The fruit for Carnival of Love comes from the very best blocks of the classy Gateway vineyard in McLaren Vale. We think of the block as ‘the well bred gentleman’ - deep, profound, lean, intense, rich, concentrated, restrained, elegant, and always behaves well.

Squid ink like in colour, the Carnival of Love is the wine I tell all my friends about. Huge aromatics ranging from bright fresh berries to plum jam with undertones of chocolate icing. Multi layered, offering milk chocolate and mocha flavours that roll on to a seamless structure and velvet tannins. Rich and powerful, this wine is a prime example of what McLaren Vale Shiraz has to offer. -Peter Tavella
