Tasting Notes

By daylight the finest wine to appear under this label, this very harmonious and unusually fragrant shiraz has a heady, floral bouquet of sweet small berries, cherries and restrained, fine-grained oak lifted by alluring hints of spice and black tea leaves. It's not hard to imagine a splash of viognier in there somewhere. Long and supple, it's smooth, gentle and very fine-grained, delivering a charmingly willowy presence of vibrant black, blue and red fruits supported by bony tannins, finishing savoury and slightly meaty, with exemplary freshness and persistence.
