    Totally opaque black dark red colour with a bright dark red hue. Aromas of dark plum and liquorice are drowned out by some prominent toasty vanillin oak with notions of graphite and blackpepper also evident. Fruity plum flavours drive the mid weighted palate with some red liquorice, dried herbs, spicy oak and pepper characters on the back half. Fine grained tannins and fresh acidity concluding with a modest aftertaste.
    Drink over the next 3-4 years.
    Alc. 13.7%

    Other Reviews….
    Crushed and destemmed, open-fermented, 14 days on skins, matured for 10 months in French oak (10% new). A great example of why Heathcote is regarded as one of the foremost regions in Australia for shiraz. This overflows with supple blackberry fruit, rounded tannins and a clean finish. Exceptional value. Drink by 2034.
