2016 Dardel Shiraz
Deep magenta in colour: aromatic and lifted with an array of scents that include: blood plum, red berries, smoky chacuterie, cinnamon, Szechuan pepper and the sweet smell of sous bois lingering in the background.
Dardell , The palate is textural and rolling with dark chocolate tinged with orange zest , wood spices, blood plums, black pepper, refreshing acidity and fine grain tannins giving palate drive and allowing the flavours to linger.
This Cool Climate Shiraz has grace and refinement yet it also shows restrained power. It becomes even more complex and tight with decanting and breathing for an hour or more.
Dardel 2016 will be one of our longest lived wines.
