PARRA SUPER OLD VINE ($150 per bottle)

Barossa Valley Shiraz

An intense and broody nose of white pepper, baking spices, licorice, fresh blueberries and blackberries, complemented by an elegant background of toasted hints and graphite.

The palate is surprisingly fresh with vibrant dark fruit tones and a good acidity to sustain the mid-palate, fading into a persistent spicy finish with fine yet powerful tannins.

Careful cellaring will only unravel the full extent of this wine’s offering.
