Ruby-red in colour, this wine has pungent aromas of minerals, espresso and nuts, lifted by floral high tones of lily and gardenia. Dense, fat and saline; thick and exotic. Conveys an impression of strong extract, with plenty of framing acidity. Finishes long and sweet, with hints of coffee and maple syrup. A distinctly flamboyant style of shiraz, aged in 80% American oak.
