Deep, bright red/purple colour. Fresh and clean on the nose, with berries, cherries and spices to sniff. Really lovely aromas and flavours, understated and still evolving. The palate is fine and long with supple tannins and great harmony. A superb glass of shiraz. Tasted April 2020. Drink 2020-2033. 95pts Huon Hooke (#1 under $35 Shiraz tasted in 2020 – South Australia)
