The Lane Estate Shiraz 2021
Shiraz co-fermented with a touch of Viognier, which explains the deep purple colour and fragrant floral aroma profile. Opens with toasted black pepper and graphite. Expressive notes of violet, brambly dark berries, candied dark cherry, and roasted sour plum. Meaty and fleshy on the palate, accompanied by the sweet and sour interplay of ripe dark fruits. Integrated oak allows the fruit to speak openly. Savoury graphite tannins are interwoven with lingering cherry pith and black tea flavours. Top value here with the possibility of further ageing!
Tasting glassware: Riedel Veloce Syrah/Shiraz
