Dark fruit and savoury characters leap from the glass; liquorice and blackberry, laced with a hint of char. Complexity in the shape of iodine and soil-like notes follow. The wine is powerful and structured. After decanting, the core of sweet black fruits, plums and mulberries permeates through the savoury layers of earth, shiitake mushrooms and cedarwood spice. The wine is quite compact and focused. A powerful yet refined expression of Shiraz with balance, complexity and persistence.
