Beautiful vibrant primary fruit characters here. Smooth, integrated and seamless. There is a juicy character but it's quite tight and controlled with a precise and detailed finish. Shiraz has gone through a remarkable reincarnation after being pulled out in 1980 in favour of sauvignon blanc. Thankfully it's now part of a renewed focus. This one is spicy and highly perfumed with a vibrant high energy palate. Lovely primary fruit flavours well supported with excellent large format oak influence.

Aromas of pitted cherries, grilled herbs, overturned earth and whole nutmeg. Medium- to full-bodied with structured, sturdy tannins. Fresh acidity lifts up the savory fruit and sweet spice. Very good intensity and depth here. A bit of chew at the finish. Best after 2023. Screw cap.

Tasting Profile

Nose
An abundance of dark cherries, blueberries, mulberries and currants surround the nose with heightened floral notes of violets and lavender. Beneath there lies subtle spice notes of black cardamom, cinnamon, nutmeg and star anise. Gentle layering of cedar, black pepper, and chalk is threaded within.
Palate
An energetic palate with bright and fresh acidity is the backbone weaving within concentrated boysenberries, cherries and currants. There is dimension and capacity through the mid, leading to structural silky tannins that linger to a long finish.
