This one will please any lover of pure Shiraz. Intense aromas of blood plums, blackberries and wild forest fruits with toasty vanillin, cedar and cigar-box oak derived from the wine’s maturation in French and American oak hogsheads. The palate is rich and complex with lovely integration between the intense dark fruit flavours and fine-grained oak. Easily enjoyed now but will develop and age gracefully over the next 10 years.
James Halliday: “Good colour; complex blackberry, spice, mocha and vanilla interplay; fine, rounded tannins and controlled oak. Rating 94”
