Situated between the sea and the hills, on South Australia’s Fleurieu Peninsula, the McLaren Vale wine region enjoys a moderate Mediterranean climate and rich diversity of soils. Highly regarded for traditional McLaren Vale varieties, Serafino produces Shiraz and Italian varieties which reflect the family’s Italian heritage.
Strikingly deep, bright-rimmed hue. The 83/14/3% blend works to perfection, with the red fruits of grenache doing all the lifting, shiraz providing a dab of plum coupled with silky tannins. Truly delicious. Drink to: 2030; Price: $28.00; Date Tasted: July 2020; Alcohol: 14.5%; Rating: 96 Points & Special Value Star; James Halliday
Wonderfully ripe and inviting, the bouquet shows Black Doris plum, mixed berry, vanilla and toasted nut characters with a delightful spicy overtone. It's supple and succulent on the palate, offering excellent weight and intensity together with fleshy texture and silky tannins, making it immediately appealing.

There's a lovely lift of pot pourri and geranium amongst the darker, fleshier fruit aromatics. The flavours are mid-weight, juicy and layered, with satsuma plum, morello cherry, musk and spice interwoven amongst some firm, savoury tannins and crunchy acidity. A really delicious, complex and layered example of its genre. Rating: 95 Points; Aaron Brasher; Real Review
Dark berried compote flavours, big and concentrated in texture, an oaky richness and with chalky tannins. Big wine. Rating: 95 Points; Melissa Moore; Wine Pilot
Good bright colour with lifted aroma of wild forest berries, spice and plums. It has medium weight, but a bright juicy and composed palate that captures dark plum spice, a touch of violets and a juicy and resolved finish. Jason Bowyer, Judge.
