Shiraz * 75cl * Vegan * 14.5% ABV * Barossa Valley, Australia
Grapes are from an old vine vineyard in the Barossa with vines over a hundred years old, many on original rootstock. Throughout their vineyards they encourage the humble dandelion amongst the vines as they suppress winter weeds and provide mulch in summer.
Intense crimson with youthful purple hues. Lifted blue fruits of blood plum and ripe blackberries along with Christmas pudding-like spice flow out of the glass as well as spicy pepper, and hints of bramble and dark chocolate. Generous mouth-filling sweet blackberry, raspberry and plums cover the palate with lashings of sweet spice. Firm but fine tannins and dark chocolaty nuances continue throughout the lengthy palate with youthful finish.
