Sister's Run Epiphany McLaren Vale Shiraz 2021


95/100 & Gold Medal - International Wine Challenge 2023.

Many good things happening here and then we look at the price!!

This Sister's Run Epiphany & Fleurieu Peninsula Shiraz is grown by Tony Parkinson at his famous McLaren Vale vineyard. These tough Shiraz vines produce rich flavours in their berries as they strive to 'populate or perish'.  

The balance between richness and tannin, between power and an underlying acid tension and edge, make this red wine almost too drinkable. You could serve this with as much ease alongside an eggplant laksa or a barbecued piece of peppered chicken. Don't be afraid to cellar some of this wine too. There's reward ahead.

"A ripe, lifted bouquet of dark raspberry and plum flesh, milk chocolate and dark flowers, there’s a natural sweetness of fruit, some peppery spice and cinnamon. Dry, fruity, firm and dry with plenty of acidity and core fruit flavours that mirror the bouquet. Juicy and fleshy moments with a warm moderate finish." Cameron Douglas 90/100

"Opulent and engaging with dark fruit richness, dark cocoa, cake spice and toasty oak aromas on the nose. The palate is concentrated and plush, filled with powerful fruit flavours backed by layers of fine tannins, making it gratifying and hugely appealing." Sam Kim 94/100
