The Shiraz was sourced from John Russell’s St Vincent Vineyard at Krondorf. Opaque black crimson colour with deep crimson hue. Perfumed nose of vanilla, spice, cedar and plum followed by a white pepper end note. Fine dry tannins backbone, with palate flavours of spice, cedar and vanilla emerging, followed by a liquorice end note. A wine of considerable power, with the dryish tannins remaining in balance and supporting the ripe fruit structure.
