This Shiraz was aged in French oak barrels for 18 months. This wine is tasty and complex; showing black berry flavours with great texture on the palate. There are blackcurrant and fynbos aromas on the nose. Will reward cellaring.
18 months in barrel. 30 % new French oak, balance 3rd and 4th fill barrels.
Should be drinking well until about 2015.
