2017 Shaw and Smith Shiraz Balhannah

Single Bottle - Standard - 750ml

Tasting Notes:

A very complex nose with intense red berries, cherries and plums, swathed in complex spice aromas and strong, whole-bunch and oak influence, which combine to drive this to ever more complex heights. The palate has rich, ripe berries, smooth tannins and dark-chocolate flavors in abundance. The smooth tannins are so well crafted. Super fresh and articulate finish. Drink or hold. Screw cap.
