Description

Dark. Dark and inky in the glass which immediately tells a bit of a story about the intensity of this wine. The nose is pretty but no shrinking violet – though it does smell a bit like violets. Violets and plums with just enough oak to add a further dimension. The wine’s impossibly soft, juicy, silky and seamless. It’s rich, it’s round, it’s long, it’s velvety. It’s really, really delightful. It’s delicious.

Wonderfully ripe and fragrant, this gorgeous shiraz shows blackberry, blackcurrant, dark chocolate and cedar characters with nuances of truffle and olive. It is succulent and velvety on the palate with excellent mid palate weight and fruit intensity, leading to a lingering gratifying finish. At its best: now to 2027.

This rich shiraz has impressive depth of ripe dark plums and blackberries with a fresh, lithe palate that carries impressively deep flavors. Drink or hold. Screw cap.

Impenetrable pitch black core with a deep dark red black tinged hue. Pronounced aromas of liquorice, black cherry and to a lesser extent blackberry rise from the glass followed by toasty vanillin cedar, earthy black olives and blackpepper notes. Rich, powerful and concentrated, the cooler 2017 vintage conditions have resulted in a Rank & File with more prominent blackpepper elements. Lavish black cherry, blackberry and liquorice fruit saturate the full bodied palate and deliver great length. Underpinnings of toasty vanillin cedar and black olive lead into a blackpepper laced finish. Sturdy yet well integrated tannins and a long persistent aftertaste.
