18 Months In American Oak Hogsheads (100% New)
An advancing wave of flavours, understated power and charm. The swell builds and a more persuasive wave follows …and then more, with each sip. The flavours: Laden with shiraz fruits from the Barossa to the North and McLaren to the South - ‘maritime’ and ‘continental’ climatic/varietal diversity. Liquorice, soy and malt, burnt vanilla marshmallow …Dark chocolate, wrapped in a satiny candle-like coating. Supple oak nuances - dexterously integrated, no doubt compliments of barrel ferment. The texture: Creamy/velvety, tannins are tight with a ‘rusty’ edge. Ebullient acidity, whilst lively and racy, is well-managed.
