A purple core remains deep out to the rim. The aromas are a combination of fresh blackberries and blueberries, plum jam and licorice strap. The palate is medium to full bodied. It is driven by dark fruits and offset by sweet spice and a hint of pepper on the finish. It is at once soft and pleasant while lingering on the palate and showing strong ageing potential.
The Shiraz was de-stemmed, crushed and pumped over twice a day for twelve days. The wine was matured in older oak barrels for twelve months prior to bottling.
