Beautiful black, magenta hues. High impact aromas of dark fruit and chocolate with underlying cracked pepper, anise, charcuterie
and spicy vanillin notes.
Dense red/black fruits, mocha notes, vanillin spice. The fruit fleshiness is vibrant, fresh and long, balanced with great acidity and fine tannins. An excellent example of what
McLaren Vale Shiraz can achieve
"Bright and deftly balanced to deliver its ripe blueberry and sandalwood flavors on a sleek frame, emphasizing juiciness and balance over power without losing definition. Best from 2011 through 2018. 1,500 cases made."
"Inky purple. Crushed blackberry, licorice, rose and violet on the pure, primary nose. Dense and sweet, with a strong Indian spice character and lovely freshness to the deep flavors of dark berries and licorice. Gentle acidity and supple, building tannins give this lush wine impressive shapeliness. Finishes on a sweet note, with very good persistence."
