Dark and dense, offering a toothsome mix of black licorice, loam, wild blackberry and black tea notes. The details start coming in on the finish, adding complexity and some momentum, with cigar box, Szechuan peppercorn and Turkish coffee elements lingering. Shiraz and Viognier. Drink now through 2030. 500 cases made.
Deep garnet-purple colored, the 2014 Run Rig opens with a bang, delivering intense fruits of the forest and blackberry preserve notes with hints of sandalwood, cardamom, dried Provence herbs, Indian spices and garrigue. Full-bodied, rich, concentrated and oh, so satisfying, the beauty ticks all the great Barossa Shiraz boxes and then some. It is still relatively primary, so I’d recommend giving it another 2-3 years at least in bottle and drink it over the next 20+.
This shows lots of grilled meat, spice, hints flower petal and bark. Full body, velvety and rich. A very pretty and delicious finish. Drink now.
98.5% shiraz, 1.5% viognier, matured in French oak (45% new) for 30 months. The colour is, if anything, deeper (though not brighter) than Descendant, the small amount of viognier blended, not co-fermented. The tannin structure makes its presence felt with the first sip, and continues through the length of the palate, but doesn't lead to tannin gridlock. The oak, too, is evident, but together with the tannins, provides a foil for the alcohol.
