Shiraz 2015, Eagles Nest, Constatia
Out of stock
This wine has a deep dark core with garnet rim. On the nose, aromas of whole black peppercorn, blackcurrant and subtle black cherry are delicately entwined with a faint smoky wisp, star anise and cloves. These aromas are complemented by a savoury, mouth filling palate with distinct pepper spiciness
and soft, integrated tannins. Well-judged acidity focuses these flavours as they resonate in the aftertaste.

The wine was then racked into French oak barrels, After 18 months in barrel (40% new), selected components of the wine were blended to create a complex and harmonious finished product.
