Lights Valley Colonel Shiraz 2017


This wine spent a year maturing in a mix of French and American barrels and hogsheads, after fifteen days on skins, before blending and spending another year in oak. Under diam. Very dark magenta, the nose gives us spicy notes with raspberries and blackberries, a real fruit salad mix of dark and red fruits. Soy, cloves, and coffee grinds carried by good length, focus and fine tannins. Perhaps a little muted on opening, but give it a decant for an hour or two and it blossoms. Should age beautifully over the next six to ten years.

Variety: Red Wine, Shiraz
