2002 Lawrence Victor Estate
Coonawarra Shiraz

The rich red soils of the Coonawarra and an exceptionally long cool ripening season have combined to give a very rich, supple yet full-bodied wine.  This wine has a bouquet with plenty of blackberry, mulberry and black pepper.  Two years in small American and French barrels has added vanilla, caramel, and toast like characters.

Blackberry and plum-pudding like flavours are complemented by a minty aftertaste.  The cedary oak flavours and silky tannins give great length to the palate.  This wine can be enjoyed now or up to six years in a good cellar to see even more complexity.
