McLaren Vale through and through! Here is the epitome of great Shiraz from our world renowned region. This is a wine that seduces. The nose is loaded with blackpepper and baking spices. Liquorice and aniseed aromas are lifted by bucket loads of red and black plummy berry fruit. It's not just fruit and spice on the nose here though. This is a complex wine showing fresh mushroom and forest floor characters with subtle hints of aged oak and scented glimpses of seasoned leather and pipe tobacco. The seduction continues on the palate with a foreboding rush of dark fruit, blood orange, charcuterie, and peaty earth. All wrapped around a robust concentrated core of chewy, round tannin. This vibrant tannin line carries through to a long, spicy, mineral finish. A wine any lover of Shiraz will happily be seduced by.

James SucklingAromas of blackberry and blueberry with walnut, dark chocolate and cigar box. Full body, round and juicy. Lovely savory finish. Love the intensity and structure to this. Screw cap.
