TASTING NOTES

A blend of 94% Shiraz and 6% Cabernet Sauvignon.  Starting to show some maturity, with complex aromas of mocha, red berries, undergrowth, mineral and a hint of leather.  On the palate the wine remains fresh and vibrant, yet has mellowed and developed some secondary flavours.  There’s quite powerful cassis, undergrowth, mocha and leather flavours on the palate, quite firm, mouth-coating tannins and impressive length of finish.  Still plenty of time ahead, but will not improve any further.  93 points, drink now to 2030.  (December 2016).

 

Note – level is very high should/top of shoulder.
