99 Points - James Halliday | Very Limited Stocks
Toby Bekkers is regarded as one of Australia's finest red wine makers, who has built a huge following by consistently crafting wines that reflect exceptional attention to detail and a deep understanding of the McLaren Vale wine region.
The 2018 Bekkers McLaren Vale Syrah represents their flagship wine which always delivers a wine with the generosity of McLaren Vale Shiraz, tempered by fragrance, spice and soft, silky texture. A wine that always attracts plenty of interest, we're delighted to have just secured a very small allocation of this exceptional McLaren Vale wine.
"99 Points. Hand-picked, the vinification very gentle to avoid extraction of aggressive tannins, matured in French puncheons (58% new) on lees with minimal additions until Dec '19. A truly great McLaren Vale syrah, as smooth as velvet, yet with layer upon layer of purple and black fruits that are hypnotic in their perfection. 14% alc. Drink by 2043"- James Halliday, Halliday Wine Companion 2021.
"Best bottle of McLaren Vale Shiraz in my life. This is a remarkable wine and cheap at $120. The understated wine making relies on vineyard or vine selection and elegant use of whole bunch. The tannins are very fine and the fruit length means you linger over sip the last glass as you don’t want it to end. Rare job, class act and a delight to know we are still getting better as a wine making country. Thanks Emmanuelle and Toby" - Rob Geddes MW.
"97 Points. 5 Stars. This glorious shiraz is dark and brooding, rich, plush and dense, with supple tannins and succulent mouthfeel. It boasts ripe blackberry, cranberry, dark plum and black cherry flavours with an earthy bass note. It will have a long and distinguished life."- Huon Hooke, Gourmet Traveller Wine Magazine.
