Winemaker's Notes

The dry, cool to mild climate of the Great Southern region is well suited to the production of a spicy Shiraz of great depth of flavor and structure. Through careful viticulture and winemaking and moderate use of French oak, Plantagenet endeavor to produce a wine that will express its sense of place and deliver harmonious and compelling flavors.

The color is a deep garnet, suggestive of a dense and concentrated wine. Aromas of red cherries and blueberries are vibrantly expressed on the nose, with fragrant violet perfume and pepper spices contibuting interest. The palate is generous, with abundant red and black berry fruit, fine grained tannins and a silky, sedutive texture that is above all else, beautifully balanced.

"Full ruby. Rich cherry preserve and cassis aromas are complicated by cracked pepper, anise and smoky minerals. Fleshy and weighty, offering juicy dark berry liqueur flavors and a late note of candied licorice. Supple tannins add shape but allow the ripe fruit to come through. Finishes smooth and long. This is very easy to drink now."
-International Wine Cellar
