Superb Serafino

Serafino Terremoto Syrah 2012, McLaren Vale, AUD $150

A superb, generous shiraz with rich ripe vanilla, smoky and chocolate-dipped plum aromas. Full-bodied, concentrated, plush textured, with masses of flavour and supple tannin. Oak has been liberally used but it’s not unbalanced. Drinking well already at nearly six years. Long-term ageing. (Screwcap)
