    You’ve got to be pretty damn good to make the shortlist for “Barossa Valley Wine of the Year” at one of the biggest and most influential wine shows in the Asia Pacific region. Not only did The Shortlist make the shortlist – it beat ’em all!

    McGuigan The Shortlist Barossa Valley Shiraz 2016. A seriously good example of Barossa Shiraz with a swag of impressive awards to its name, several years bottle aged under its belt (and potentially to be cellared up to 10 years from vintage) and a crazy good saving.

    Intended to sell $30 plus and primarily aimed at the restaurant and bar scene, now the importer is offering an absolutely stonking good deal on this prized Trophy winner. The Shortlist has got quite the list of gongs…

    From Australia to Aotearoa to Hong Kong to London – this has done the ‘biz on the wine show circuit. At the IWSC in London the judges said “Powerful and ripe. On the nose, there’s dark cherry, eucalyptus, blackcurrant, spice and oak. On the palate, the wine is powerful, with dark fruits and spice. A dense and mouth-filling offering, packed with fruit. The supple tannins bring balance “

    Using high quality fruit from a great 2016 Barossa Valley vintage, this is a wine that got the bells and whistles treatment in and outside of the bottle. Aged for 16 months in new French and American hogsheads while every label is individually numbered on the front.

    All this for a snip under twenty bucks? A Barossa Valley bargain, pure and simple.
