Deep crimson with a purple hue the depth of aromas promises abundance and complexity. Rich, brooding dark berry fruit teams up with dark spices, burnt caramel and freshly ground coffee. Surprisingly fresh on the palate there is a beautiful balance between the violet florals, fruit sweetness and dense, viscous texture. Layers of flavor glide across the tongue with succulent and beguiling tannins that end with a lengthy, elegant finish. A truly captivating McLaren Vale Shiraz.
