Hope Estate Basalt Block Shiraz 2014

SKU 03425


Pepper and spice, with some blackberry undertones and cedary oak. A smooth, juicy palate of intense berry fruits, spicy plums, and an underlying earthy savoriness. Balanced acidity along with integrated vanillin oak and soft silky tannins give the wine great mouth-feel and length. This medium-bodied wine will complement most delicate lamb and beef dishes and Italian cuisine.

Wine EnthusiastFresh berry-salad aromas suggest tart, just-ripe summer fruits in this medium-bodied Shiraz filled with crunchy fruit. It's forward and smashable in the best sense, even if it's not profound.
