Mount Stapylton 2011 ‘Shirley’ Shiraz
A gracious, refined and amazing cooler vintage full of complex flavours , white pepper, blood plum, blueberry, mulberry; with complex minerality, savoury charcuterie, black olive, cigar box notes and silky tannins that would reward careful aging for more than 15 years.
This was a cool vintage for us and this wine has some beautiful savoury flavours.
