En Soleil Shiraz by Cape Jaffa 2014

Biodynamic wine, grapes grown by the Koch family and vinified by Anna Hooper.

Red and black fruit medley just hanging in the glass, doing its thing, slowly wafting out. With time, a little dried earth emanates, sweet edged oak in play too. 

Sensuous, seductive, spicy - characterful wine that possesses a fine, powdery tannin structure. There's a little chocolate in the mix - not necessarily something I'd associate with Wrattonbully, and no bad addition. 

Reasonable length - not quite what the palate suggests. 91 

Tasted on: Monday 27th June, a Flower to Leaf day
Source: Sample
