The family-owned,multi-award winning Shingleback Winery is located in the McLaren Vale where the climate is similar to the Mediterranean or the southern Rhone, but moderated by sea breezes which allow the grapes to ripen slowly and evenly, giving them the fine flavours and structure that define McLaren Vale wines. The deep magenta Shingleback Red Knot Shiraz shows delightful aromas of ripe strawberry, blackberry and black cherry that are embellished with chocolate, coffee bean, vanilla and black pepper nuances. The palate is a delicious compote of ripe summer berries, perfectly balanced with the satiny fruit tannins and fresh acidity. The Shingleback Red Knot Shiraz has won a host of Gold, Silver and Bronze awards at International, National and Local competitions; including : Silver at the 2014, 2013, 2012 UK International Wine Spirit Competition, and the 2013, 2012 UK Decanter World Wine Awards.
