2010 Shiraz


Winemaker’s Tasting Notes
A wine with a deep red, rich concentrated colour. On the nose are black berries, liquorice and coffee bean notes. As this full bodied wine opens up and develops, one is left with a long lasting spicy finish on the palate. Very good use of oak results in a superb balance between acidity, fruit and wood tannins.
