2016 Blackwell Shiraz
2016 Blackwell Shiraz is full bodied with layers of rich dark fruit, black forest cake and cocoa. The tannins are full and mouth coating, with rich texture and persistence. It is opulent and balanced with a structure that will see the wine age gracefully over the years.
"Crushed/destemmed, 10 days on skins, 14 months in oak (30% new). The deep crimson colour holding right to the rim is a major come-on, and you won't be disappointed with the supple black fruits, spice and licorice that follow. A jackpot for a vintage that had every winery scrambling for space - bargain of the year."
