There's nothing shy about this. It's fresh and bold and packed with tarry flavour. Deep colour, intense blackberry, aniseed and tar, grainy/earthen/fruity tannin and just a whisper of toasty oak. It fumbles around for cohesion through the finish but it's raw and very young. The quality of fruit is excellent, if not outstanding.

Winery Tasting Notes
Deep red in colour
An expansive nose of fragrant dark cherry fruits, flowers, pepper and hints of meat.
The palate is a showcase of pure unforced McLaren Vale Shiraz - medium to full bodied with dark berry flavours, a seductive fruit sweetness and soft savoury tannins. With excellent freshness and length, this fruit driven wine will continue to gain complexity and character with medium term cellaring.
