Dense ruby colour, with an intense, enticing nose of rich, red berry fruits and subtle French oak. The wine is incredibly dense and focussed with a richness and purity that simply exudes top class Barossa Shiraz.
Rich dark chocolate, mocha and cedar spice are all to the fore but the central core is highly focussed. Supple tannins from the gentle press merely complement the fruit, silky and rich yet impressively interwoven into the wine. The fruit/ acid balance ensures excellent length and provides a purity of structure for long term ageing.
Release Date: 16th October 2019
