Bright fruit, the aromas are indulgent. Earthy, clove, slight leather and black olive.
Plenty of dark fruit on the palate to delight the senses. Savoury, soft and silky. The use of oak and the balance of the wine are both spot on.
A strikingly good shiraz, and a ripping deal for $35.
After an hour or so in the glass some lavender and violet floral aromas began to appear. The wine just kept getting better. And it will continue to do so. Hide it in the cellar for five to ten years and it will repay you in buckets.
