"Strikes the right balance between dense, dark flavors and a juicy, vibrant note. Apricot, cherry and raspberry flavors are pure, ripe and expressive, mingling well with Earl Grey tea, sarsaparilla and orange zest accents. The tannins are concentrated and a tad rustic on the finish, adding a charming chewy element. Drink now through 2027. 4,130 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
