2014 Catlin Black Label Shiraz
Wine Rating 
 
97

Whole berry with some whole bunches, and post ferment maceration has resulted in one of the most complex and complete Shiraz that I have enjoyed from the Adelaide Hills.

A dark red with purple hues in the glass, the nose has textured plum with white pepper sitting alongside liquorice all sorts, sweet spices and earth.

Time on skins has given a suppleness on entry, but don't be fooled the wine has immense structure and drive with attractive plum and blackberry, olive and liquorice has a beautiful balance.

A dusting of white pepper sits amongst a sea of dark fruits to finish.
