96 Points from Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

The 2017 Velvet Glove Shiraz is reminiscent of a lush, chocolate-covered raspberry, a mouth-filling one imbued with a uniquely plush, supple texture and a lingering finish. There are hints of mint, pepper and anise to bring complexity and a slight savory-herbal edge, but much of this wine's considerable charm is in the way it feels in the mouth—caressing, expansive and complete.

 

94 Points from Wine Spectator

Distinctive, featuring a ripe, plush, creamy core of raspberry coulis and maraschino cherry flavors, with sophisticated notes of dark chocolate, rosemary and cigar box lingering in the background, showing some restraint. In the end, this delivers plenty of harmony on the long, lush and velvety finish.

 

Winemaker Notes

Sticky plum jam and spicy nutmeg aromas are alluringly prominent on the nose, whilst berries and mocha weave

and envelop your entire palate. The finish is incredibly smooth and silky, with elegant fruit flavors that linger in your mouth. An outstanding example of a perfectly balanced Shiraz from McLaren Vale.
