2018 La Pleiade Heathcote Shiraz
Inky black in colour with a deep dark purple black hue. Wafting through the olfactory senses is an intense bouquet of fresh blackberries, liquorice and black cherries which are followed by some black plum, vanillin cedar, earthy dried herb notes and pepper. Rich blackberry and liquorice fruits have an opulent and expansive feel over a back drop of scorched earth, dried herbs, vanillin cedar and spicy leather. Ripe chewy tannins provide a robust framework. Excellent concentration and power with a long sturdy finish.
Cellar 6-8 years.
