Wine Review: This opaque and medium purple colored Shiraz opens with a faint cola and blueberry bouquet with hints of black cherry. On the palate, this wine is medium bodied with integrated medium acidity. The mouthfeel is nicely balanced, quite smooth, and silky. The flavor profile is a black currant and blackberry blend with notes of oak and anise. We also detected hints of peppermint tea and black pepper. The finish is dry and its dusty tannins and flavors drift away nicely. The Tasting Panel would pair this Shiraz with Tuscan styled veal chop. Enjoy – KWGTP

Winemaker Notes: Color: Deep, dark red with a black core and purple hue.
Aroma: Deep set aromas of blackberry, bramble, black pepper, dried flower, Indian ink, and baking spices.
Taste: The intensity and vibrancy of this wine hits you with a wall of flavor. This shiraz ratchets up a gear as it runs the length of the palate and caress just like a Barossa Shiraz should. An elegant wine of refined beauty and power that tightens up and commands authority. Sheer elegance seeps through the palate. The tannins start early and build momentum drawing the wine through to an extremely long and detailed finish. Notes of blackberry are prominent where complexing notes of baking spice, florals, and black pepper add light and shade.
