Deep purple red in colour. Rich, ripe and jubey
blackcurrants and plums with cool fresh minty notes
and cedary oak. A full-bodied wine with an immediate up front fruit impact. Showing rich, sweet flesh but finishing leaner with fine powdery tannins. Certainly a wine to cellar for the medium term, up to 5-7 years.
"Smooth and polished, aiming for elegance with its silky texture and warm berry and orange peel flavors, lingering on a spicy finish. Drink now through 2015. 250 cases imported."
"The 2006 Fighting Flat Shiraz is an attractive cool climate expression of Shiraz. It was raised for 10 months in a mix of new and used French oak hogsheads and barriques. The nose gives up aromas of smoke, cinnamon, lavender, meat, and black cherry. Medium-bodied, savory, and well-balanced, this tasty offering will provide pleasure over the next 6-8 years. "
