Sumptuous shiraz

Ulithorne Frux Frugis Shiraz 2014, McLaren Vale, AUD $85

A luxurious shiraz with full body, opulent flavour and soft tannins. The colour is saturated red-purple; the bouquet involves sweet blackberry, dark chocolate and black cherry. It has great balance in spite of its formidable body and power. Delicious! (Cork)
