Totally opaque black dark red colour with a dark red hue. Spicy black cherry aromas combine with liquorice, scorched earth, dried herbs, smoked meats and blackpepper. Rich black cherry and aniseed flavours have a plush feel with dried meat, scorched earth and peppered dried clove characters on the back half. Slightly grainy tannins with a ripe chewy finish. Very Northern Rhone like it has excellent depth and intensity concluding long.

Other Reviews….
60% whole bunches, includes 3% viognier wild yeast co-fermented in open vats, matured for 12 months in barriques (20% new), gold medal Geelong Wine Show '16. Brilliant crimson-purple; a tautly strung, intensely flavoured and powerfully structured shiraz with its whole life in front of it. A wine of true distinction. Drink by 2035.
