SHIRAZ GRENACHE ZINFANDEL MCLAREN VALE 2018
Appearance: Intriguing garnet hues in the glass
Nose: At first purple fruit pastilles dominate the nose but then the scent of slightly dusty dried rose petals come to the fore with glimpses of ripe raspberry sweets
Palate: Smooth and rounded with a combination of purple and red berry fruits and tinges of cinnamon. The finish is all mocha chocolate delivered by lingering tannins
Food Pairing: Slow roasted belly of pork
