Largely shiraz, with a small amount of mataro added and co-fermented with viognier and marsanne. Brought back an instant recollection of the Bayeux Tapestry. It commences with a Catherine wheel of aromas, flavours and textures which are astounding, and - you think - leave nothing more to be said. But there's more, much more. For one thing, it is a sacrilege to spit out any of the wine when tasting it, for the autopilot is still working furiously trying to capture the interplay between the infinitely complex fruit flavours, the charcuterie, the spices, the earth, the tannins, the oak, and the licorice.
