Chain of Ponds Pilot Block Shiraz 2017 750ml
90 Points - Wine Showcase Magazine 2020
A finely balanced, soft and elegant Shiraz. Deep dark plum red with a slight purple hue. Aromas of ripe plums and dark cherries with a spicy cinnamon overlay and hints of vanilla and mocha. The palate is rich, with dominant blackcurrant and hints of dark plum and blackberry. Good tight acidity and smooth velvety tannins complement the spicy backbone of supporting oak. An underlying savoury character gives the wine an extra layer of complexity. The wine has great depth and length and would prove to be the ideal accompaniment to any red meat or game dishes or with a cheese platter.
Grapes were sourced from premium vineyards and vinified to retain vibrant ripe plum and blackberry fruit characters. The wine was then matured in French oak for 12 months giving richness and complexity.
