About the wine

Tasting notes

Blackcurrant pastille, blueberry compote, crème de mûre, cassis, black liquorice, brined, black olives, exotic, sweet spice, anise, espresso, hot earth, smoke, warmed oyster shell, nori and graphite. Quite an extensive list however, this tips the iceberg as I could easily spend a day with the bouquet alone. Unbelievably dark and brooding on the palate. Powerful, muscular and alive with sun-drenched blue and black fruits whilst being tempered by cooling steel, warm earth and sweet Asian spice. This exudes quality and magnificence.

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!
