Ben Potts Fiddle's Block Shiraz 2016
The Fiddle’s Block Shiraz is deep red-purple in colour.
Intense dark berry fruits and earthy overtones with balanced spice oak nuances.
The palate is full bodied, intensely concentrated, rich, ripe and well balanced, fine grained dusty tannins and excellent persistence
Fruit was sourced from 65 year old vines. Totally opaque black dark red core with a dark red black tinged hue. The nose offers up aromas of black cherries, liquorice and toasty vanillin oak over some earth and spice. Bold black cherry, liquorice and blackberry flavours fill the richly textured palate with toasty vanillin oak, earth and spicy pepper characters ensuing. Firmish tannins give the wine structure and impart a chewy feel to the wines texture. Long spicy black cherry, liquorice, blackberry, toasty oak and scorched earth aftertaste.
