Setanta Talunga Ridge Shiraz
'Talunga Ridge' is the Adelaide Hills farm where Tony and Sheilagh Sullivan, owners of Setanta, planted their vineyard. It sounds like it could be just about anywhere - Talunga Ridge Farm Valley Heights etc etc. This Shiraz, however, tastes like a proper Adelaide Hils red, with a combination of ripe fruit richness and more cool climate mint.
Talunga Ridge wines represent the very best of nature and mans finest handiwork. Deep purple red in colour. The spicy dark-fruited fragrance of cassis, blackberries and plums is perfectly integrated with vanilla, cedar, dark chocolate oak and peppery nuances of cloves and cinnamon. With firm, powdery tannins, it finishes long and savoury, gradually revealing layers of fruit and complexity.
