The ultra-fine palate broods with strawberries, red currant, white pepper and a hint of savoury green olive. The alluring sweet and sour nuances are delivered with delicate cool climate structure, extra fine tannin and hints of smoky oak supported by a long savoury finish. While this Shiraz is more than approachable at present it will reward medium term cellaring and pair well with grilled red meats, lamb koftas spring to mind.
