Classic Shiraz fruit with strong backbone.
A deep red wine with a nose of fresh plums, wild herbs, and black olives. Its elegant bounty of fruit is supported by fine chocolate notes. Full-bodied, highly concentrated, yet deeply structured with impeccably integrated tannins. A grand wine that flourishes upon decanting.
