Wine Review: This dark ruby colored Shiraz opens with a dark raspberry and dark chocolate bouquet. On the palate, this wine is full bodied, balanced and rich. The flavor profile is a very tasty ripe blackberry and black raspberry blend with notes of oak, black olive, espresso and dark chocolate. The finish is dry and its flavors and moderate tannins extend nicely. I also picked up a touch of minerality in the end as well. This Shiraz is a perfect fireplace wine for winter. Enjoy - Ken
Winemaker Notes: This powerful wine is vibrant, complex and jam packed with a kaleidoscope of flavours. Chocolate, plum and liquorice just to name a few; all beautifully wrapped in bright berry fruit on the mid-palate. Subtle oak elements and flawless tannins, intertwine with the fruit ever so gracefully. This Shiraz finishes with a persistent length and is an absolute joy to drink.
