2013 Reserve Shiraz
Colour: Concentrated, dark blackberry with plum hues.
Nose: Brooding, complex aromas of coffee, mocha, cedar and super ripe forest fruits.
Palate: A wine that builds flavour from the front to the back palate, delivering flavours that the nose promises. A very bold, yet elegant wine with fine grain tannins, full body and well deserving of a "Reserve" tag.
Drink: Drinking wonderfully now as a youthful style, however the tannin structure of this wine will ensure great age ability. Envisaged peak aging at 6 years.
Residual Sugar: <0.5g per bottle
2013 was a hallmark vintage for red wines at OFW. This wine developed wonderful colour and flavour intensity. The blend consists mostly of new oak, providing the lifted aromas and also some older oak that has added palate richness. A true Reserve wine from a special vintage.
