Winery Tasting Notes
Crimson red with purple hues.
Earthy with hints of black pepper and blackberry.
An inky front palate leads into a dense core of coffee and licorice with dark berries. A voluptuous tannin structure frames the wine nicely with lingering notes of cinnamon and dark chocolate.
Open one hour prior and serve at room temperature. Foundation Shiraz is the ideal accompaniment to full flavoured dishes such as braised confit of Faison.
This wine has superb ageing potential if carefully cellared.
