This is a supple, elegant and very appealing wine with the tannins well integrated, but prominent enough to need 6months longer to show off the ripe, fleshy black-triplums, chocolate shadings to their best advantage and to be combined to the tone of spiciness and peppery flavours which are insured by the shiraz in major percentage.

Tasting Notes

This is a supple, elegant and very appealing wine with the tannins well integrated, but prominent enough to need 6months longer to show off the ripe, fleshy black-triplums, chocolate shadings to their best advantage and to be combined to the tone of spiciness and peppery flavours which are insured by the shiraz in major percentage.
