Gorgeous and evocative aromas of blueberries, earthiness and soft spices. There's a whiff of apricot kernel too.
The Shiraz comes from vines planted in 1969 and is blended with Viognier, Mataro and Marsanne (95/2.5/2/0.5)
It's still taut and tense and that is understandable - this is not a wine to drink now. Medium bodied fruit caresses the mouth effortlessly. Fine spices are dusted throughout finishing dangerously soft, long and moreish.
Over a couple of days tasting this continued to soften beautifully. Layers peeling off carefree delivering class.
Tuck it into a dark space and treat yourself years down the track.
