Description: The Wolf Blass Presidents Selection Shiraz is rich red in color with deep purple hues. The wine displays aromas of raspberries and plums supported by varietal characteristic white pepper and spice notes. 14 months barrel maturation in seasoned and new American and French oak has enhanced the complexity and integration of the fine, velvety tannins.
Ageing Potential: 5-7 years
Tasting Note: Deep garnet colour with crimson hues. Lifted fragrant aromas of bramble berries and plum on the nose meld with integrated oak notes of dark chocolate and vanilla bean. Full bodied palate with a rich core of blackberries and plums supported by well integrated oak, finishing with long finely structured tannins. A touch of spice and pepper are evident to create a more-ish, food friendly wine.
