D Block Reserve Shiraz 2015

Award Winner

Tasting note

Deep purple red. Ripe blackberry primary aromas are supported by notes of chocolate earth, pepper and roasted cashew-like oak. A compote of dark berry fruit overflows the mid-palate and is focused and restrained by the fruit and oak tannins. A perfectly balanced and seamlessly integrated wine that expresses the essence of the vine, the time, the place and the harsh, black cracking clay over limestone soils that make up this unique corner of the Davey Estate Vineyard.

* No animal products are used in the production of this wine.
