Possingham & Summers Signature McLaren Vale Shiraz 2014
Previous Vintage (2012) of this wine scored 96 Points from James Halliday Wine Companion.
Full bodied with layers of forest fruits and lashings of dark chocolate. This wine is ready to drink now or will benefit from careful cellaring for up to 10 years.
The wine was sourced from vines up to 70 years old and aged in predominately French oak (70% new) for 30 months. Excellent colour displaying an inky black core and a very deep dark purple black hue. Lifted aromatics of liquorice, blackberry and dark chocolate arise from the glass with background notes of toasty oak and spice. Rich and succulent the palate delivers generous flavours of dark chocolate, liquorice and ripe blackberries over a background of vanillin oak and spice. Opulent velvety texture with silky tannins. Long aftertaste of dark chocolate, liquorice, ripe blackberries and spicy vanillin oak.
