Petersons Old Block Shiraz

Cracka Review

The colour is dark black-red with youthful purple radiance and the bouquet displays warm cedary oak. This leads into berry aromas, plums, and the spiciness of cloves and coffee. The cedary oak on the nose influences a very tight integration of fruit and undertones of earthiness which continue onto the palate. Sweet peppery fruits emerge on the first sip, persuading more plummy characteristics and fruit flavour to surface with another taste. The palate is perpetuated by the earthy quality which is surpassed by savoury oak.

Fractionally hazy colour; has strong regional terroir already with earth and leather overtones to blackberry and fine tannins; controlled oak.
