- WA - Margaret River
- Western Australia
Smoky, toasty oak, some nougat whiffs, coffee grounds, earth and then dark berry fruit characters. Fleshy in fruit, good concentration of flavour, even and rich, imbued with toasty oak, finishes with sour, tangy acidity that clatters across the palate. Decent drink feels like it would be popular, regardless, with weight and flavour bursting out of glass. Rating 89 - Drink by 2020, Mike Bennie, winefront.com.au (SEP/2015).
Winery Tasting Notes
Deep, vibrant ruby red with a youthful purple rim.
Ripe mulberry and spicy plum aromas with earthy, leafy notes. Savoury toasted brown spices and a touch of cedary oak from barrel maturation contribute layers of complexity.
A silky wine displaying typical Margaret River Shiraz elegant style and character. The fleshy ripe plum and mulberry flavours show purity and are complemented by nuances of brown spice and pepper. This wine shows great savoury complexity, balanced by fine supple tannins.
