Shiraz Pyrenees Victoria
Excellent Langtons Classification. A more masculine style of Shiraz, a wine of immense power and complexity, vinified from parcels of small, gnarled berries with massive concentration of fruit characters, picked off the most enduring vines grown to the parched western districts of country Victoria. The structure and complexity is impressive, exhibiting the taste and nose of Grand Cru Hermitage. An appealing freshness to the wine brings it forward, Dalwhinnie ages magnificently but is a profound experience to savour immediately upon release.
Extraordinary colour, purple, red and bright. Very rich, smelling of ripe mulberry, amazing savouriness already with the intriguing Christmas pudding spices. The oak is beautifully integrated and well in the background. Vibrant nervy dark berry fruits explode on the palate suggesting serious concentrated power, yet the weight of the wine is elegant, displaying the Dalwhinnie hallmark black olive character. The fruit, oak and acid are in perfect harmony.
