The quality of the Shiraz in this vintage was exceptional, and so we've chosen to highlight the fruit (99% of the blend), with just a touch of Cabernet Sauvignon to gain colour and depth. This vintage of our Valley Oaks Shiraz offers aromas of ripe plums and blackberry jam, touched by white pepper and anise. This is a substantial wine, medium to full on the palate, with a juicy, long, smooth finish balanced and rounded out by the soft supple tannins. In tune with the wonderful aromas, flavours of plum and raspberry fruit are accented by some spicy oak smoke with soft vanilla. It's no wonder those in the know, well, know Shiraz.
