WineDiva's Review

Intensity, opulent, aromatic.
McLaren Vale's family owned Gemtree farms organically and biodynamically. This opulent 2021 Shiraz was matured in French oak barrels.
Inky notes of black raspberry and mocha, violets, licorice, tealeaf and tar are underscored by brown spices. Generous purple fruit dominates the palate and is woven with chocolate liqueur, Turkish coffee and baking spices. It has some tannic chew and notable intensity.


 
Recommended Pairings
Rich Meats , Barbeque, Cheese - Hard/Aged, Good First Impressions
