A deep and densely presenting wine. Dark red to maroon, with purple and magenta coloured hue.
Rich black currant and blueberry fruits are defined in the aromatics. Lifted characters of dried oregano and tarragon intermingle, while undertones of dark plum and oak spices are brooding. Flowing onto the palate, the aromatics are all present in flavour and are tightly packed. The fruit sweetness is balanced, and reigned in somewhat, by a refined tannin structure producing an elegance and great persistence. Dark chocolate and toasted oak notes find their way through in the finish.
A Shiraz of this standing will benefit cellaring for 10+ years, while still being enjoyable and rewarding in its youth.
