Hastwell & Lightfoot [McLaren Vale SA], Sands of Time Shiraz 2016

This flagship single vineyard Shiraz from the Hastwell & Lightfoot team admirably reflects its regionality and pedigree.
Mixed herbs & spices, restrained tannins, zingy acid, hints of almond & tobacco all lurk around  the fulsome core of primary fruit in the red berries spectrum & 14% Alc component.
The sum of all the attributes has all the makings and promise of a generous Shiraz of heft and substance which deserves some cellaring.
It would ideally suit red meat dishes now but will develop complexity and versatility after some bottle years
