Saintly shiraz

Taylors-St-Andrews-Shiraz-2013Taylors St Andrews Shiraz 2013, Clare Valley, NZD $70

Elegant, powerful shiraz with appealing sweet dark berry, raspberry, vanilla, dried fruits, coffee and chocolate flavours. Soft, ripe tannins add structure and balance opulent fruit sweetness to give a pleasantly drying finish. A seriously good shiraz that can be appreciated now or cellared with confidence. (Screwcap)
