Tasting Notes: A soft, medium-bodied cool climate shiraz whose floral perfume of violets, cassis, raspberries and dark cherries reveals a hint of restrained oak, spice, pepper and charcuterie. It’s long and elegant, with a pristine core of dark berries, plums and cherries tightly knit with gentle oak and supported by fine, dusty tannins. It finishes savoury, with a refreshing acidity.
