Description

Another striking release from the masters of cooler climate Shiraz. Shaw & Smith mix the ferment up with a whole-bunch component a la the great Syrah of the Rhone, resulting in a thrillingly complex bouquet of dried herb, raspberry and ripe cherry alongside more classical Shiraz aromas. A tiny production of just 200 cases makes this a rarity sought after by collectors - we nabbed the lion's share of NZ's allocation at a very sharp price.

Smells

Very complex aromas of dried herb, spice and hazelnut (hallmarks of well-handled whole bunch work) with underlying notes of cedar, red earth, black cherry, truffle and plum.

Tastes

Amazingly subtle and silky on the palate, with bold notes of cherry, blackberry and truffle the refinement and mouthfeel more like top Grand Cru Burgundy, whilst not compromising its classic flavours. Expect this wine to deliver massively in the cellar and be truly magnificent when revisited from 2028 onwards.

We taste, rate & guarantee every wine we sell.
