2008 Arbiter Shiraz

Deep, vibrant crimson/garnet colour.

Blackcurrant and plum aromas with lifted clove-like spice complemented by toasty oak and a touch of fennel. Intense but balanced juicy red currant and plum characters on the palate with a gentle spice. Generous, soft mouth-filling tannins and balanced acidity.
