Pertaringa Undercover Shiraz 2012

Bearing similarities in profile to its bigger brother, the 'Over the Top' Shiraz, by virtue of choc-plum. The path becomes a little divergent with the presence of some red fruit that pops up its head.

This is on the face of it, a sweeter wine with red and black fruit present, lighter in feel, drying fine-grained tannin and even a touched of grilled meat. 

Finishes with black fruit, flashes of violet, smooth and easy going in nature. One for now, now harm will be done with up to 6-7 years in the cellar. 90-91 

Tasted on: Wednesday 21st May, a Root transitioning to Flower day
