Ceccherini Cristiano

This is close to perfection
Fairly big body not huge, but driven by an agility, suppleness, drinkability tremendously out of the ordinary
I have had other vintages and I must admit 2012 is arguably the best or close second to the 98.
Statement :I love Clare Valley shiraz, it is surely the most Rhone like 100% shiraz, for the big bold body u need to add malbec or mataro. Almost flawless
Silky tannin and long

I'm amazed this was even remotely approachable during a tasting at the cellar door.
Unfortunately the price tag of almost AU$300 doesn't sit well.
