COLOUR: Deep plum red
NOSE: Savoury notes first detected, yet quickly courted by generous cherry liqueur/chocolate aromas. Scrents of dried beef sit alongside a textbook garrigue deconstruction - dried herb/oregano/thyme/lavender. Perplexingly, an exotic emission continues - best guess - copha, cranberry and activated walnut.
PALATE: Black olive; coffee and mocha flavours abound, as do the generous shiraz fruits sourced from the norther viticultural reaches of South Australia. Medium-bodied, with a great core and lovely framework. A succulence is immediately noted - a fruited pomegranate/cranberry/quince paste-induced acidity, balanced with fruit sweetness.
