Cellar: 4 - 5 Years (2005-2006)

A very refined, sophisticated Shiraz, produced from 80 year old un-grafted, dry grown Shiraz. Matured for 21 months in American and French oak hogsheads. Very deep crimson colour with mauve edges. A superb nose – with great similarities to Cote Rotie. Powerful aroma of spice, leather, earth, ripe plums, vanilla and confectionery followed by end notes of violets and liquorice. Mouthfilling palate flavours, dominated by liquorice, spice, ripe plum, leather, earth and truffle – concentrated and with great persistence. Velvet smooth tannins. Perfect balance. Exceptionally long aftertaste of earth, spice, plum and liquorice. Cellar 4-5 years.
