Thomas Wines Elenay Shiraz 2014
The fruit is a blend of Shiraz barrels that didn't make the famed flagship Kiss Shiraz, yet were too good for the other blends.
Like the Kiss, this is on the fuller end of medium bodied. Dark fruits are elegant and unashamedly generous. Thick skinned plum, a kick of earth before a wash of red berries come late. Oak has been handled well, not too heavy but enough to be seen. A shimmer of spice canters through with ease leading to a long and satisfying finish.
Due for release 7 May and is definitely worth tracking down.
Will cellar long term.
