Lovely aromatic mineral nose with layers of opulent blue and purple fruits but also a dark broody core. Nose has sweet cherry, blood and iron, graphite hints and a savoury earthy blueberry concentration. Palate show plush density, creamy tannins and an underlying focus and vibrant youthful intensity with a kiss of vanilla pod oak spice. A dry vintage yielding a punchy, classy, concentrated expression of Shiraz.
