Domain de Binet Shiraz 2012
Sourced from Jester Hill's vineyard which has an elevation of approximately 850 metres just outside Ballandean, this is very much a typical Granite Belt Shiraz.
Granite and minerally aromas synonymous with the region peer through flanked by red berries, dark plums and lots of savoury appeal - specifically nutmeg, pepper and a hint of dark chocolate. Engaging spice chips away with a gentle humility. The finish is soft, long and satisfying.
Will age long term but decant before serving if drinking now just to give it a breath of air.
