Plantagenet Wines Pty. Ltd.

Grape Variety

100% Shiraz

Description

A medium-bodied wine with complex spice and white pepper, soft plum, cherry, violets and a dense core of dark fruit. This wine embodies the structural and layered elegance that Great Southern Shiraz is known for; illustrating a well balanced use of savoury, dusty oak, which combined with tight acid structure provides great length and character. A classic, cooler ripening year has afforded this wine extensive cellaring potential.
