Shiraz 2019

  • “Very fragrant fresh raspberry and mulberry with an underpinning of dense dark fruits envelopes your first sniff from the glass.  Opening up you can touch on the cinnamon and all spice that flirts on the edge and white pepper that reminds you of the variety in play.  The wine on the palate is denser and rounder than earlier versions with tannin and structure interplaying, with both fresh raspberry / plum fruit and a dense floor of blackberry conserve that holds the wine from front to back.  A more serious, but more complete Shiraz from the estate – potential for aging has multiplied as the structure feels solid even 2 days after opening.  So pleased and so excited as this variety is gaining its full potential in the vineyard and in the bottle.”
