Winemaking
Intense concentrated fruit characters with hints of spice, leather and earthy undertones. It will continue to develop with careful cellaring.
Tasting Notes
Exhibits a rustic earthiness with spicy plum fruit, green peppercorns and encompasses an interesting dark chocolate coated coffee bean element. A well-constructed wine that displays balanced fruit sweetness integrated with seasoned oak.
Palate
The palate is succulent and beautifully proportioned with subtle oak and tannin giving a complete and pleasant long lasting finish.
Peak Drinking / Cellaring Potential
You could enjoy any of these vintages now or be rewarded by further cellaring.
Food Matches
The pepper and spice to this Shiraz will beautifully compliment steak.
