On the nose the prominent white pepper tones, a hall mark of the Eagles' Nest Shiraz, are complemented by dark red berry fruit and hints of violets. These primary aromas are lovingly enveloped by hints of leather and smokiness which derive from the wine's maturation in barrel. On the palate one discovers the balanced integration of all flavours and aromas. White pepper and red berry fruits remain the dominant pillars of this wine. Soft, integrated tannins and a structured mid-palate hold true and follow through to an extended mouth-coating aftertaste.
