Angullong Crossing Reserve Shiraz 2013

Sometimes regurgitating a press release is acceptable:
"The Angullong Crossing Reserve block sits within aged red / brown loamy top-soils, a result of the volcanic origins of Mount Canobolas. This gives way to sandy clay and shale subsoils with a limestone base ensuring good aeration and drainage. The result is relatively low vine vigour and low yields.
“The new Crossing Reserve is a limited release wine with only two hundred cases produced. Whilst 2013 is the first vintage, we have made small parcels from 2014 and ensuing vintages.
"The wine was matured for 12 months in French oak and then 18 months in bottle before release."  

Beautiful red fruit, summery berry pudding, with vanilla accents from quality French oak. Perfect seasoning with a nuttiness and delicate spice. 

Fine, elegant; tannin is fine-grained, graphite structured that conveys composure. There's not as much fruit conveyed on the palate, but it has length in spades. Give it some time. 93
