2010 Journeys End Ascent Shiraz Museum Release
Dense pitch black colour with a deep dark red black rim. Deeply fruited the nose offers up intense aromas of dark plum and aniseed followed by hints of blackberry, vanillin oak, earthy fennel and light pepper. Rich, bold and velvety the palate is decorated with soft, opulently textured blackberry, dark plum and liquorice fruits which are underpinned by subtlety toasted spicy vanillin oak, earthy fennel characters, light leather and pepper. Silky smooth tannins glide the wine through to a long complex finish.
Superb drinking over the next 1-2 years.
