Our Shiraz has developed a loyal following of customers and along the way has collected trophies and medals. These vines were cloned from now 90 year old vines situated at Springton, and are now 19 years old. Loaded with intense fruit flavours, it is drinking well now but will age gracefully for years to come.
Mike Press Wines, located in the internationally acclaimed wine region of Adelaide Hills in South Australia, sets the benchmark for quality wine at an outstanding price.
MIKE PRESS 2017 SHIRAZ
Tyson Stelzer - Oct 2018
Mike Press Adelaide Hills Single Vineyard Shiraz 2016
With his vines now 20 years of age, Mike Press has elevated his shiraz this vintage to a style more about fruit ripeness and less about oak, though – crucially – without downplaying the cool climate credentials of his special, high site. Mike was nervous he’d taken it too far, but he need not fear: this is a mighty Adelaide Hills shiraz that will enthral his band of loyal followers with its deep, luscious and adorable black cherry, black plum and blackberry fruit, with the presence and stature that will win some new fans, too. It doesn’t demand the length of bottle age that it’s called for in the past, but don’t underestimate its potential, because it’s charged with the tangy acid and fine tannin structure to hold its own for many years yet.
