Tar & Roses - Shiraz 2016
Liquorice, cherry liqueur and freshly tilled earth with hints of sponge cake on the nose. Ripe plums with black forest cake flavours and dark chocolate on the palate. Silky fine tannin, with a long finish. The wines come from two main vineyards, one off the deep red Cambrian soil while the other comes from tougher more gravelly ground. The first gives us a wine rich, chocolaty and earthy while the other has more highly fragrant notes with good acid and sweet fruit. The wine that results is our take on Heathcote shiraz.
