Winery/Brand: Ulithorne


This Shiraz exhibits a complex nose of ripe berry, spice and fine oak notes. The palate has intensity and length with ripe fruit flavours, and well integrated oak. The tannin structure is firm and clean combining both fruit and fine oak tannins which give length and finish to the wine. As for previous vintages, this Shiraz will develop gracefully and build complexity over the next 8-10 years.
