2012 Old Well Shiraz cabernet
Deep red in colour with fruit aromas of blackcurrant and fruit jubes along with black pepper and spice.
Nuances of aniseed and mint with a faint hint of spicy oak provide complexity.
Intense blackcurrants upfront on the palate provide a roundness but underneath is a very fine tannin structure conveying a persistent spicy finish.
