2017 Millard Vineyard Shiraz
From the Millard’s Vineyard on Haddrill Rd in Baskerville. Only 2 barrels from this great vineyard aged for twenty months in new French hogsheads. From what has turned out to be a very, very impressive vintage for our Swan Valley reds. Powerful as ever, with added layers of complexity and elegance.
This wine screams generosity. The nose is extremely lifted showing pungent cedary oak, dark berry, and chocolate aromas. The palate is fleshy and rich with intense dark plum and spiced fruit flavours. It has outstanding length, and a plush mouthfeel. Velvety tannins coat the mouth throughout the earthy finish.
