The Wine :
Sourced from a small selection of our favourite shiraz blocks, the grapes were both hand and machine picked before fermentation in the traditional open top vats. The wine was then matured in older, large format French oak casks. These 2,700 litre casks highlight the fruit purity whilst making sure that oak isn’t the dominant character.
The Review :
Forest berries, a dash of pepper, some earth and vanilla. Only just medium bodied, tangy berries, earth and spice, some grainy tannin and a bright finish of fair length. I’d give this a year or two more in the cellar, then I suspect it will be right in the zone.
