Black raspberry and baking spices on the nose. Tangy sharply focused red fruit flavors are pinot-like in their vivacity; surprisingly light in body with impressive mineral lift and cut.

The palate shows good concentration with ripe fruits at the fore and a mineral laden finish. Very juicy this elegant medium-bodied value red is showing excellent acidity which lightens the texture. A perfect example of cool-climate Shiraz.
