Deep, brooding red colour. Opulent aromas of rich, ripe red fruits. Harmoniously integrated oak intertwines with spicy fine grained silky tannins. This is a seriously concentrated and balanced Shiraz with exceptional palate length of luscious texture and full flavor. Allegiance Wines has sourced this premium parcel of Shiraz from the premium Australian wine region of McLaren Vale. This wine is an excellent example of the outstanding results possible, when an allegiance between growers and winemakers creates their best expression of the varietal and vintage. Cellar potential of 8-10 years.
