Would you like a magnificent example of Barossa Shiraz? Look no further.
Matured for 2 years in new French oak. Super saturated inky black colour with very deep black crimson red hue. The nose delivers an expressive aromatic profile of liquorice and blackberry as top notes followed by some toasty vanillin oak, confectionary and black pepper. Boasting a huge core of sumptuous decadently rich fruit the palate is a super concentrate of liquorice and perfectly ripened blackcurrant along with nuances of dark chocolate and some toasty vanillin oak finishing with a peppery back palate. Velvet smooth tannins. Exceptional length and power with a very long imposing liquorice, blackberry, vanillin oak and black pepper aftertaste. A classically proportioned Barossa Babe.
Awards and Accolades
2013 Vintage: ☆☆☆☆½ - Winestate Magazine's Best Wines of 2015 "Masses of charry oak on the nose but has the intensity of dark fruit characters to balance it. A very classy palate with lovely length and depth of fleshy flavours"
