Country: Australia, South Australia
Tasting Notes: Deep, black-cherry red. An initial lift of coffee grind, mocha/malt and spice sequentially volatilise, consorting to form an initial aromatic wave. Then, ascending elements of dark chocolate, black licorice, European dark-berry fruit salad ... with an emphasis on the dark/black! Full-bodied and multi-dimensional. An assortment of flavours, including blackcurrant, dates, beef and stout pie, dried fig ... Expansive – length, depth and weight ... reverberating with amplitude and attitude! Mid-palate fruit sweetness, aligned with solid/firm tannins, culminating in a long, lingering finish
Varietal: 100% Shiraz
Pairing: Pot roasted hare, slippery jacks, peppered potato and warrigal greens.
