Bouquet: An immediate impression of a hedonistic mix of ripe plum/black cherry and exotic spice combined with Vanilla pod and clove adds to the considerable complex aromatic profile of this wine.
Palate: 2007 being a warm year has resulted in reds of great ripeness and depth of flavour. This reserve Shiraz is no exception with a wonderful rich core of ripe spicey shiraz fruit combined with a certain minerality seen the Great Shiraz wines of the Rhone Valley.
