Sumptuous shiraz

Chateau Tanunda 100 Year Old Vines Shiraz 2015, Barossa Valley, AUD $150

The bouquet recalls dark chocolate, rich fruitcake and cocoa powder, with charcoal and earthy notes. The wine is magnificently sumptuous in the mouth: decadently rich, velvet-textured, concentrated and beautifully balanced. Powerful and long, but not a blockbuster, it retains freshness and vitality.
