2012 Orphan Bank Shiraz
COLOUR: Medium depth crimson with purple hues.
NOSE: Intense and lifted perfume of blue fruits, violets and chocolate, entwine with hints of sage, cedar and white peppery spice.
PALATE: Juicy raspberries and Satsuma plum fills the mouth, with lovely oak sweetness adding to the mouthfeel. The fruit is wonderfully balanced with briary and white pepper spice and textured, fine tannin.d pepper adding to the complexity. The finish is fruitful and long eventually ending in a spicy, peppery fashion with the austerity of youth.
