Colour: Deep plum red.
Nose: Exotic. Lifted floral aromas combine with dark chocolate and cinnamon and citrus peel spices. The savoury background is reminiscent of cold meats.
Palate: Distinctive, spicy Shiraz fruit typical of the region. Ripe stone fruit flavours, assertive tannins and leathery finish.
Serving and cellaring suggestions: This wine has great potential and, although tempting now, will yield great rewards for those who cellar it for the medium to long term. This wine deserves good food - a hearty beef casserole or strongly flavoured cheeses.
