Tasting Notes

Colour

Deep and dark

Aroma

Freshly picked and squished blackberry with background black olive tapenade

Palate

All those aromatics spill into the mouth, with a sense of dark chocolate and a mid-palate spike of fresh blackberry. Lip-smacking structure and impressive length make this a very special shiraz crafted to drink now and for cellaring over many years.
