Menthol, eucalyptus, black cassis, dark cherries, blueberries, black raspberries and dark florals on the nose. Palate of; warm black plums, blackberries, black currant, dark cherries, black licorice, mint, eucalyptus, softer tannins, black cherry cola, light soft loamy soil & clay. This finish is long with medium tannins, ripe fruit s and beautiful acidity. Photo of their tasting bar and another that shows while they do some whole cluster fermentation they largely de-stem. From 70 year old vines.

HW notes: big, full, nicely oaked Shiraz from a storied estate. Vines are 70+ years old. Me: Complex. Great wine that’s actually interesting for guests who only want big & fruity.

Inte alls mitt typ av vin, kan dock inte förneka den slående kvaliteten. Torkad/övermogen frukt, björnbär, svartvinbärslikör och hemgjord marmelad. Trä, rostat kaffe och choklad. Stor kropp och en massa fina tanniner. Tål 10–15 år i källare.
