The colour is medium garnet red and the bouquet displays minty, floral, raspberry and tomato ketchup aromas, becoming more spicy and alluring as it breathed. Tight, bright and intense in the mouth; medium to full bodied, fresh and energetic with savoury tannins. A graceful, fruit-driven shiraz. Now to 2023. 13.2 per cent alcohol. 93/100 (Huon’s Wine 360)
