Other Reviews…..
The commitment here to showcasing Pandora's box of shiraz is admirable, each cuvée strongly tethered to its respective region. Here, McLaren Vale fruitcake and baking spices, clove, star anise and boysenberry. The palate expands admirably, absorbing the kit of oak that tends to a feel of older-school astringency on other cuvées. The finish, pulsing, saline and long, shedding the obvious sweetness with air as the tannins grow in stature and grasp the wine's scruff, imparting a confident augur of age-worthiness. Drink by 2035.
