Singular shiraz

the-lane-reunion-shiraz-2014The Lane Reunion Single Vineyard Shiraz 2014, Adelaide Hills, AUD $65

This is a distinctive, mysterious shiraz, with an echo of kola as well as white pepper and medicinal herbs in its complex bouquet. Medium to full body, with ample soft tannins. It’s holding much in store. It grows and opens in the glass, and should cellar well. Excellent wine; decanting recommended. (Screwcap)
