Eden Road "The Long Road" Shiraz 2012

Sees 15% whole bunch and is made mostly from Gundagai (great word isn't it?) fruit. Opens with brown spice, hints of charred meat with background florals.

There's a little blackcurrant pastille and a smokiness - akin to liquid smoke for the BBQ - and again beyond that there's a little vanilla oak. Multi-faceted and complex is perhaps how one would describe it.

Medium bodied, violets and a delightful mix of black fruit, dark florals enhanced with a sprinkling of spice. Finishes with vibrant acid and a little rub of tannin. 91
