Wine Region: McLaren Vale, Australia
Grape: Shiraz, Cabernet Sauvignon
Colour: Deep, dark red with an almost black centre, yet still visible bright, youthful hues on the edges.
Nose: Close your eyes, let the imagination run and think of…
Satsuma Plums, blueberries, blackberries, beetroot and a hint of rhubarb aromas. Savoury toasted spice characters of anise, cloves and cardamom, seamlessly mingle with mouth-watering hints of fennel, caraway and mint on the nose, with just a speckle of pepper.
Palate: These characters follow through onto the palate, with a fine structured vanillin oak base providing a holding pattern for the flavours to be held up generously. Elegant yet firm tannins from Caber-net Sauvignon provide a sophisticated backbone, whilst fleshy Shiraz enriches the body and blossoms in the mouth, providing warm enriching and powerful flavours. The two grape varieties complement each other perfectly and showcase elegance and savoury length, which seems to last an eternity.
Texture: Powerful with great structure and definition in its youth, this full textured wine will evolve over time and reward with more complex flavours. After many, many years of patience, slowly but surely this gentle giant will become an angel with even more elegance and finesse and ever-growing flavour profile.
