Winemaker's Notes:

Deep magenta hue with anise fruit and perfumed aromas apparent on the nose. A full-bodied palate shows appealing fruit to acid balance and finishes long with well integrated oak influence.
My Notes:

About Three Rings:

The aim of this project, a partnership between importer Dan Philips, renowned winemaker Chris Ringland, and famed grape grower David Hickinbotham, is to offer good value Shiraz from relatively old vine Barossa fruit from vineyards in the Kalimna, Gomersol, and Vinevale sectors.
