Tasting Notes:

Medium to deep garnet/purple, the 2013 Shiraz opens to expressive red and black cherry notes enveloped by nuances of black raspberries, pepper, star anise and violets. Medium-bodied, soft and satiny, the palate is fresh and pure with great concentration leading to an elegant, long finish.

Tasting Notes:

70% whole bunch and matured in 500l French puncheons. Inaugural release from a vineyard planted to 550 vines per hectare. It's an exotic wine, developing slowly. Truffles, cloves, olives and saltbush on a bed of dark cherry-plum fruit. Tannin: ultra fine. Length: to burn. It's complex already but new worlds of aroma/flavour will open up given time.
