Carlei Green Vineyards Shiraz
Very deep vibrant red colour with a slight purple hue, the aroma has intense lifted ripe red and black fruits avoiding any over-ripe elements reflecting the cooler year. Hints of black and white pepper spice and savoury notes lead to a palate that complements the aromas, rich and round with intense, juicy and chewy fruit, framed by soft but persistent tannins and a touch of French oak. A lingering, balanced mineral acidity finishes a complex wine representing the classical Cambrian terroir in a moderately warm year. Although the wine is rich, like its predecessor, it shows a focused structure and will therefore continue to develop with further bottle aging.
