Tasting notes

14/02/2008

A cheery yet serious Shiraz that boasts plenty of Australian bonhomie. The welcoming chocolatey, subtly spiced nose leads to a palate that has more of a brambly fruit character, while retaining darker notes of tar and charcoal. However, the fresh quality of the fruit always shines through. Drink up to 2013. £7.99
