2012 Cradle of Hills Row 23 Scarce Earth Shiraz

imageA powerful Vale Shiraz from the Sellick’s Hill subregion. In Scarce Earth parlance it belongs to the Christies Beach geological formation. Owners Paul and Tracy Smith were seeking a vineyard with a maritime influence.

Black cherry-berry fruits, fleshy plums, vanilla and blue floral mouth perfume. The tannin is particularly fine and serves to extend the finish. Seasoned with sweet spice. A little jubey with licorice in tow. 91
