2017 Kangarilla Road Blanche Point Shiraz
There is a central core of the scent of dense black berry fruits surrounded by hints of chocolate and delicious dark fudge. The palate initially is all about the rich dark black berry fruits and high cocoa chocolate and espresso. These flavours combine evocatively and are encouraged to linger by the fine fruit tannins.
The vineyard this Shiraz is sourced from is within view of Maslin Beach and it’s geology is from the Eocene (34-56 million years ago) and is on Blanche Point Formation which is a marine fossil rich calcareous siltstone/limestone. Whilst the vineyard is close to the sea, the vines are reasonably protected by sandhills and vegetation but there is still a level of stress for the vines in their quest for water which in turn adds to the quality of the fruit.
