Aroma: Deep savoury notes are the immediate attraction, followed by layers of complexity mixing dark chocolate and red berry fruits, backed up by hints of Middle Eastern spices and peppery notes.

Palate: This is McLaren Vale Shiraz in its most delicate and layered form. Sandy soils are renowned for producing wines of power, yet displaying a deceiving elegance. A melange of black and blue fruits dominates, heightened by swirls of mocha and spice seamlessly melding into a sophisticated and velvety texture. The very high quality French oak melds beautifully with ripe tannins to ensure a memorable finish.
