A soft and fleshy Shiraz boasting a lively palate of juicy red berry fruits, plum and spice, along with subtle chocolate and savoury characters from the oak maturation. Already a gold medal award winner at the China Wine & Spirits Awards.Download Full Winemaker Note
At release the wine is a dark red colour with ruby red hues.
The wine has an enticing, lifted aroma of plum, blackcurrant and dark cherry fruits along with a bouquet of subtle mocha and a touch of oak derived spice.
The palate is plump & generous with ripe fruit characters of plum and blackberry. Mocha coffee and subtle spice from oak maturation balance the fruit flavours. The wine is medium to full-bodied with a fleshy mid-palate and supple tannin structure. It is a well balanced wine with great texture, good length and enjoyable fruit on the finish.
This wine can be enjoyed upon release but will reward careful cellaring up to and possibly beyond 2023.
