About the wine

Tasting notes

Dark magenta-black in colourVery intense aromatics. Dark black fruits, plus dried fig. Sweet spice, almost incense-like. Classy cedary oak.Rich and full-bodied. Very generous, powerful. Totally mouth-coating. Bright fruit flavours, licorice. Firm chalky tannins giving longevity as well as nice grip to counter-balance sleek fruits, but importantly polished. Harmonious acid. Very classy, savoury oak, highly integrated. A long lingering finish.

The Grape

Shiraz or Syrah

Shiraz, or Syrah, is one of the most loved, rich and powerful red wine varieties made famous for its mineral and structured expressions from the Rhône in France and the rich and decadent fruity expressions from the Barossa Valley in Australia. Full bodied, rich in antioxidants and generously fruity, Shiraz sits proudly on the table for those that like their wine big and bold. Think violets, blackberries, plum, chocolate, pepper, black olive, liquorice, rosemary, tobacco and spice...i'm thirsty already!
