Wine tasting notes

Deep dark magenta with garnet edges The aromatics are floral and spicy; wild black cherry, violets and lavender with orange marmalade and intense smoked peppercorns. Finer nuances of cardamom and cocoa nib entwine with leather and oriental spices with undertones of briar and savoury licorice notes The palate is rich and juicy displaying satsuma plum and ripe black forest berry fruits of mulberry and blackberry overlaying cured charcuterie and smoked pink peppercorn. Oak notes of cinnamon and nutmeg, licorice and clove interlace with red mineral earthy notes, hints of orange peel and cedar bark. The tannins are chewy, yet silky with great texture and detail

Food matching

The savoury complexity of this wine matches very well with a vegatable laden lasagne of smoked eggplant, chili feta, grilled zuchini and red capsicum. A simple grilled veal chop on the bone, or venison fillet served with truffle garlic mash, slow roasted fennel and honeyed carrots enhances the spicy and savoury elements of this shiraz exquisitely
