2006 Clarendon Hills Astralis Shiraz
Sumptuous, sensual and hedonistic — this definitive expression of ripe, concentrated McLaren Vale shiraz leaves nothing to the imagination. Dense and smoky, its heady bouquet of brambly dark fruit, smoked meats, pungent oak and exotic spices precedes a luscious palate deeply stained with black and blue fruit and effortlessly balanced by a powerful but pliant extract of fine tannins. It finishes slightly warm, with a remarkably persistent core of fruit backed by lingering nuances of licorice, mint, menthol and five spice.
