De Iuliis Limited Edition Shiraz 2013

Only 250 dozen were produced of the best barrels from the Talga Road, Steven and Lovedale Road vineyards.

A gutsy sucker dense with dark fruits followed by an earthen kick. Pepper and spice is dusted about. Crunchy type acidity hovers and gives every indication that this is a long term proposition. An undertow of chocolate rattles through before a fine, super smooth finish.

I tasted this without food and I'm pleased I did. There's lots to mull over. One of those wines that asks a lot of questions. Time will give the answers.

Long term cellaring.

Very good+
