I have now tasted this wine several times and looking back on each note, I now realise that each one has the word impressive in it. To my mind it is a benchmark for elegance in Australian Shiraz.
The blueberry and cherry fruit is kept lively with a sprinkle of pepper. The oak stays low key merely providing a smooth canvas, allowing the purity of the detailed fruit to shine. Powdery tannins and a long length of fresh fruit complete the mouthful. Impressive is certainly a word that will come into your mind too when you. This is a wine to enjoy today or this fruit will continue to evolve in the cellar.
