Tasted 3rd of June, 2018
Appearance: Deep and brooding. Dark core, inky and brooding; concentrated.
Aroma: Ripe, savoury. Satsuma plums, kirsch, red fruits, milk chocolate, fruit compote, leather, meat reduction, dark liquorice. Beginnings of earthy aged complexity. The wine has thrown a light crust so a pre-service decant is recommended.
Flavour: Opulent and concentrated flavours, ripe shiraz but still showing minerality inherant with the vineyard site. A big wine with strong flavours, some earthiness and a touch of leather.
