The Bonesetter Block is endowed by the most favourable ripening conditions, Shiraz can be harvested at the intense end of the flavour spectrum, exhibiting deep colours and the ripest tannins. Fruit is treated to open fermenters and the traditional hand operated basket press. Two years maturation in French oak has enhances the complexity and complements the robust flesh.
Dense, vibrant colour. Very ripe nose, sweet fruit, reminiscent of plum, blackberries and pepper. The palate is generously mouthfilling, exhibiting berry and cinnamon spice flavours, along with oak derived mocha overtones and harmonious, soft yet well defined, flattering tannins. A stunning wine, with perfumed oak supporting a multi layered powerhouse of fruit.
