Great power and elegance wrapped in a savoury packageThe dark spiciness of this cool climate shiraz oozes character; dark black forest berry fruits, dark choc and forest floor components, with a earthy, savoury richness with hints of bay leaf and baking spices. Powerful yet elegant, will age for a good few years.

Vintage 2016 - Destemmed, fermented on skins for a couple of weeks, basket pressed and then matured in large oak vats. The pathway to, as it turned out, a superb shiraz release from Cape Mentelle. This is a beauty. Roasted meats, black pepper, some smoky reduction, a plushness and yet, overwhelmingly, a spicy discipline throughout. Completely unafraid of tannin, all peppery and nutty and firm. Black, polished, gorgeous cherries. Black, red and purple notes. Immaculately clean, bossed into shape by all that dry tannin, and yet exciting to drink, smell, revisit.
