Alkoomi Jarrah Shiraz 2018


The wine enjoys extended skin contact before a year and a half maturing in French oak barrels, and subsequently resting for four years in the team’s cellars before release. Forty-year-old vines presented in a deep blood red hue. There is a vibrant, lifted nose, with aromas of leather, chocolate, florals, spices, delicatessen meats and a hint of orange rind. Good focus with fine but firm tannins providing the grip. A lingering persistence, this is a delicious Shiraz which should drink beautifully for the next six to ten years.
