The Everest Shiraz 2017
Tasting Notes

An intense, enticing nose of rich, red berry fruits and subtle French oak. The wine is incredibly dense and focused 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 focused

Release Date: 14th October 2020

Deep crimson. Classic ultra-fine Barossa Shiraz with intense blackberry mulberry praline aromas with underlying roasted chestnut/ roasted hazel nut, herb garden notes. Plush yet refined in style with deep set blackberry pastille mulberry fruits, underlying paneforte/roasted chestnut notes and plentiful velvety tannins. Finishes chocolaty firm with a zip of aniseed. Superb density, volume and freshness.
