Deep purple red. On the nose lifted plum, vanilla and spice characters with underlying complex notes of boot leather and barrel. The palate has good body with rich black fruits, savoury herb, pepper and spicy oak notes. It is well balanced with natural acidity and barrel flavours. The finish is warm and dry, leaving spicy, cherry pip flavours lingering. It shows all the hallmarks of world class Shiraz treated with good oak maturation to produce a great wine with good ageing potential.
