(From 2013 Vintage) This Shiraz is full-bodied, well-defined and juicy-sweet with blackberry, plum and cherry flavours complemented by the subtle richness of oak. The 2013 Diamond Label Shiraz was recently awarded Double Gold at the 2014 San Francisco International Wine Show and the Gold Medal at the 2014 Royal Queensland Wine Show.
The 1998 Shiraz has a dark ruby appearance with a deep purple edge. The aroma is vibrant and lively with an excellent varietal definition of warm spices, brambles and dark plums. The palate is dominated by well defined, ripe fruit, a soft, generous mid-palate and a long, rich finish. This is supported by fine-grained tannins and a delicious underlay of toasty American oak. The wine drinks well now and will reward 6 to 8 years of further bottle maturation.
