Nose: Complex chocolate – oak and spiced plum aromas
Colour: Dark crimson.
Palate: Rich mouth feel with silky tannin, great length. Ready to be appreciated now but with all Howlin Gale wines they just get better with age (6 to 8 years).
Winemaking comments: The shiraz was vinified in an open fermenter and gently pumped over during the 14 days of fermentation. An 22 month maturation in French and American oak barriques contributes to the wine’s structure and the soft, silky mouth-feel.
