Perceptions of heavy and bulky Barossa Shiraz can be thrown out here. Medium to full bodied, aromas of cherry ripe, Christmas cake, dense dark fruits and red plums.
Dark fruits, meaty and savoury characters run riot yet there's a stability to the fun factor presented. Bitter dark chocolate like oak and the fruit keeps beating the drum to a steady tempo. The softness the clincher before a rush of generous fruit swamps the finish and sits long.
A tasting glass turned into three. Nuff said there really.
Drink now and for the medium term.
