Wine Review: This pitch-black Shiraz from Australia opens with a fragrant blackberry and oak bouquet with a hint of plum. On the palate, this wine is full bodied, very well balanced and juicy. The flavor profile is a tasty blackberry jam with notes of minerality and cedar plank. We also detected hints of mocha, green pepper and plum. The finish is dry and its well-managed tannins are nicely extended. The Panel suggested pairing this Shiraz with roast pork. Enjoy – KWGTP

Winemaker Notes: An inky red with a magenta hue in the glass, this wine opens with intense aromas of rich dark fruit, sweet and savoury spice, dark chocolate and dried herbs. The palate displays concentrated dark fruit flavours of blackberry and cherry, supported by liquorice and creamy mocha oak. Well weighted with firm, fine tannin in support of the abundance of persistent, lively flavour. A wine of great power, length and poise.
