Showing the purity and suppleness of the vintage, yet with no lack of concentration, depth or richness it gives up fabulous cassis, black raspberry, smoked meats and violet like aromas and flavours that continue to change inside the glass. It should be approachable on release, and also evolve gracefully for two decades or more.
This wine has lovely elegant fruit, it's a fine wine, not in your face, it has subtlety. The Shiraz fruit comes from 105 year old vines. It's aged in old oak and concrete.
Deep ruby-red in colour with vibrant aromas of redcurrant and blackberries, elegantly combined with mild notes of white pepper. Medium-bodied on the palate with silky ripe tannins and a long, broad finish. An elegant wine that is easy to drink.
