A deep, rich Shiraz from Western Australia with complex aromas of fruit, spice and hints of pepper. Black cherries, ripe plums and rich chocolate fill the front palate; the cedary French oak characters add to the fleshy mid palate; and the back palate has a firm tannin structure in the background.
Bouquet: Vibrant, fresh, plum fruit characters are backed by cool climate Shiraz notes of black pepper and ground allspice. There are cedary characters, from the quality French oak, in the back ground.
Palate: Plush, generous and flavoursome front palate that is seductive and appealing. There is a fine and delicate structure, offsetting the rich front palate beautifully. The spice and pepper notes flow through the mid palate and the firm yet balanced tannins provide a great structure and drive to the wine. The tannins combine with a wonderful acid line to give a long and lingering finish.
Enjoy now with red meat or cheeses or cellar for eight to ten years.

93 Points - James Halliday Fresh and polished but with ample fruit flavour. This will please all-comers. Redcurrant and plum flavours float seamlessly into sweet spice and peppercorn. Choc-cream characters help join all the dots and smooth everything out. Value. More-ish.
