"A magnificent Shiraz from this talented pair of winemakers."color>SIZE>

Tasting Note:This is a big, generous red. Totally opaque, black purple colour. Very aromatic nose, with wonderful lifted aroma of violets, plum and spice. The palate is mouthfilling with explosive flavours of blackpepper, vanilla, ripe plum and liquorice. Outstanding length and depth, reflective of the exceptional quality of the 2001 vintage. Perfect balance, followed by a very long aftertaste of blackpepper and liquorice.
A real fruit bomb! color>Exceptional value for money.
