Nose

Licentious and 'loud' and why not?! An animated uplift of so many desirable shiraz fragrances from South Australia's Coonawarra region. Liberated Mediterranean spices - paprika, rosemary, pink peppercorn - merge into scents of earthy, gamey sautéed lentil, and then to those of steamed corned beefsilverside. In parallel, charmed by wafts of the exposed top pastry layer of freshly baked strudel - still moist and imbued with rhubarb, date and preserved fig. Cedar, cigar box French oak further confirming this marque's style thumbprint.

Palate

Convincingly, silversidecorned beef flavours best reflect this region's matured 2016 shiraz fruit expression freshness insured with a cranberry and fresh date garnish. Dusty - undeniably terra rossa derived. Closer inspection reveals a brick dust textural mesh, reinforced by fine grained, chalky tannins. Focussed oak and bright acidity play an important supportive role. Subtle, layered. Lingers
