Montoro Pepper Shiraz 2018
The wine has all of the desirable features of a cool climate shiraz. It has a beautiful bright red colour with purple hues that is most appealing, as is its vibrant shiraz fruit nose. The wine is both delicate and elegant. It has a full mouth feel to it with lovely fruit flavours that envelop the palate. The taste is of dark forest berries, raspberry with a silky mid palate that leads to a red and black pepper spice finish. The lovely pepper characters are indicative of a cool climate shiraz grown at 900 metres above sea level. The wine has a lingering back palate of savoury tannins. This wine will continue to develop over the next 10 to 15 years of its life.
