Country: Australia, McLaren Vale
Tasting Notes: Dark garnet red. Highly perfumed, beguiling nose of blackberry bramble, tar, and fresh minty herbals with more delicate floral potpourri notes and powerful yet quality savoury, spicy, vanillin French oak. Serious, deep flavours of plum, blackcurrant, and liquorice, with a juicy, full-bodied, silken structure that builds to a fine, grainy finish. The real signature here is the firmer, more structural tannin that provide a framework for a wine that will age for a long time and continue to evolve in its complexity.
Varietal: 100% Shiraz
Pairing: Serious wine for special occasions. Try Italian lasagna, Vincisgrassi.
