Paracombe Shiraz - 2013

£19.00

TASTING NOTES

Paracombe Shiraz is harvested when the grapes are showing the best possible flavours and quality from the Drogemuller family vineyard and specialist local growers in the Paracombe district. The grapes undergo a slow, cool fermentation followed by gentle pressing to gain a soft extraction of flavour and tannins. Enjoy the rich aromas, concentrated flavours, and cool climate elegance of this wine. This vintage’s dark ruby colour accompanies an intense bouquet of cherries, plums, white pepper and spice. The palate offers generous flavours, layered with rich, spicy fruit, fine tannin structure and subtle oak. A complete wine to enjoy now or for many years with gentle cellaring.
"an incredible, fully mature, super-smooth and mesmerising shiraz" - Matthew Jukes
