D Block Reserve Shiraz 2016

Award Winner

Tasting Note

Deep inky red. Perfumed Shiraz aromas of blackberry and mulberry are highlighted by nuances of white pepper, bay leaf and cigar box like oak. Luscious dark berry fruit, together with notes of spice and mint, fill the finely textured mid-palate and flow into the long, focused finish. 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.
