2016 EDEN VALLEY
BLOCK 4 SHIRAZ
The 2016 EH Shiraz comes from selected rows in Block 4 and spent 18 months in French Oak followed by more than a year in bottle prior to release. It is deep crimson/purple in colour with a complex savoury nose of olives, smoky bacon, black pepper and tar. Chewy black fruits are followed by spice at the back of the palate. Fine savoury tannins provide a broad mouth feel and great length. Enjoy now and beyond 2034.
