NOSE: Fresh black olive and black currant tones with firm American oak influences
PALATE: A juicy Shiraz, soft, well balanced and showing characters of rhubarb, cloves, and cinnamon, tapered tannins and integrated acidity and oak.
WINEMAKING COMMENTS: Fruit for the 2013 Shiraz was sourced from Blks 3 & 26 in Seven Scenes vineyard. The fruit was cold soaked prior to fermentation in tank before ageing briefly in American oak for spicy complexity. A small amount of Petit Verdot included in the final blend contributes chocolate-mocha notes and structural elegance. Ideal for barbecues and casual dining.
