Icon Wines | 2014 M53 Shiraz
M53 is the original horse and cattle brand used by our ancestors on the ‘Taranga’ property in the 1880’s. Back then it marked our finest herd, now it marks our finest wine. Released only in exceptional vintages, the M53 is a rare beast and made in tiny volumes. The inaugural 2010 release was given a wow and 96 points from James Halliday.
Taranga vineyard, McLaren Vale. Sourced from the ‘Old Block’, planted by HJ Oliver in 1948. Clone unknown - we call it ‘Oliver’s Old’ locally.
