After our 2017 Dodgy Brothers Sellicks Foothills Shiraz sold out in record time, we are more excited than ever to bring you the 2018 edition!
With the Shiraz grapes sourced from three vineyards in the Sellicks Foothills sub region of McLaren Vale, the vision behind the Sellicks Foothills Shiraz was to be the prototypical McLaren Vale Shiraz – primary, lifted, fruit driven, juicy and fresh.
And we are stoked that the 2018 Sellicks Foothills Shiraz is all that, and more…
Aromatically this Shiraz is very opulent, as the aromas just jump out of the glass. To be completely frank, the aromatics on this wine are pretty crazy, and we’re sure this Shiraz is a very solid valued drinking wine that will no doubt be appreciated, much like the 2017.
It is a classically framed McLaren Vale Shiraz. Starting with its luxurious aromatics and moving onto the palate bursting with flavour, it’s at this point in its evolution that it’s simply seductive. You’ll be reaching for another glass before you know it!
This 2018 Shiraz comes from the same vineyards as the 2017, and both wines are very reflective of their vintage. The 2018 vintage was much warmer than 2017, and that is very reflective in the wines.
While we do believe this is a quaffable styled wine that doesn’t require food pairing, we do enjoy it best when it’s matched with these herb crusted lamb chops with wilted spinach. The wine has a real herbal character underlining the fruit that harmoniously matches the lamb, really making our 2018 Sellicks Foothills Shiraz sing!
