About The Wine

The Koltz Dog Day Shiraz is a great example of a more lively style of McLaren Vale Shiraz that is becoming more of the norm in the Vale.

This is grown in Blewitt Springs. The lighter, more blue fruited Shiraz from this part of the region falls more into a medium bodied frame than the blockbusting styles that the region is traditionally known for.

Gary Walsh was suitably impressed, his 93 point review wholeheartedly approving of this "Vibrant and almost fresh-faced expression of McLaren Vale Shiraz."

A bargain for McLaren Vale Shiraz fans, no doubt.


Critic Reviews

The Wine Front

"Floral, spicy, sweet new leather, plum and blueberry. Medium bodied, rich blueberry with some dried herb, tanin sits in the wine nicely, fresh and spicy finish of clean length and lip smacking satisfaction. Vibrant and almost fresh-faced expression of McLaren Vale Shiraz. I wasn’t sure if 92 or 93 points, but either way seems fine to me: it’s not rocket science you know." - Gary Walsh (The Wine Front)

Additional Info

From The Producer

DogDay Shiraz is a vibrant, youthful purple – typical DogDay colour – poised rather than inky, with graphite,  blue and red fruits.  This speaks very clearly of McLaren Vale’s cooler sites.

Elegant, yet concentrated.  It has a dark core to it, along with its usual light footedness.  A compelling wine that demands another sip – it unfurls as it breathes, and displays the modern subtlety McLaren Vale is celebrated for.
