Dense plum/purple in colour, with crushed black pepper, liquorice and anise on the nose. The use of 2nd and 3rd year old oak has allowed the fruit profile to shine. The palate is rich and ripe yet maintains a seamless integrated tannin structure and a lively dry finish.
Typically ripe and sumptuous, this slightly meaty and raisined shiraz opens with a confiture-like aroma of sweet red and black berries backed by smoky cedar/vanilla oak. Plush and luxuriant, it reveals deep flavours of plums and berries but is unable to conceal some overcooked and dehydrated influences of currant-like fruit suggestive of extended hang time. Framed by firm, fine tannins and artfully supported by new oak, it lacks the genuine length of intense fruit of the top vintages.
