Pirate Cru William Hunt Shiraz 2015

William Hunt Shiraz from the Pirate Cru. To get a true feel for a wine and its metier, meet the maker. I must have had the pleasure of knowing Dirk and Jen from the Cru for something approaching 8-9 years now, yet they continually surprise!

Here a deep and Dark Barossan Shiraz to its very core, or Plum and Mulberry - just sitting over earthen and chocolate notes. The palate medium to dull, hints of chocolate and smatterings of rasoebtty / red fruit softening things up. 

Still at 4 years it's primary, and fresh - and I'd wager for 10-15y ahead of it. 93
