THE PIPPALI OLD VINE SHIRAZ 2012

Appearance: Attractive deep red-black colour

NoseComplex, spicy; typical of Blewitt Springs characters, even slightly black pepper

PalateMore savoury palate with plenty of spice up front, and nice fruit sweetness in the middle. Soft tannin on the finish. Flavoursome and robust; definitely a food wine!

About the wineDrinking well now, but has the capacity to develop and soften with further time in the bottle. A very reliable wine from an exceptional vintage in McLaren Vale.

Snippet from James Halliday's review, August 2016:

“…Quality written all over it. Value almost goes without saying. Blackberry, earth, saltbush and smoky oak. Excellent integration of the various components. Tannin comes in a block but the fruit is up to the task.”

Country: McLaren Vale, Australia

Grape Variety: Shiraz
