MINOTAUR RESERVE SHIRAZ 2012
Appearance: Deep purple in colour
Nose: An intense perfume of red and black berries, cherry notes balanced by savoury oak and hints of earthiness
Palate: At release the wine displays varietal primary fruit flavours of rich dark berry fruits, robust gamey and complex forest floor notes. Cedar oak tones and ultra-fine tannins underwrite these flavours, to provide structure and length
About the wine: Though the balance and integration of flavours upon its release are excellent, the Minotaur Reserve Shiraz is made for medium to long term cellaring. Given satisfactory cellaring conditions, it is expected this wine will drink particularly well at 12 to 15 years of age, and beyond.
Grape Variety: Shiraz
