Whicher Ridge Long Road Shiraz 2016
The name Long Road comes from the fact that each vintage, it’s a long drive on a long winding road to reach the vineyard to taste and sample the ripening grapes. This wine is balanced and elegant in style, with all the structure and flavour intensity to age well for the ten years or longer.
Appearance: Deep inky purple with plum red hues
Aromas: Aromas of blueberry, dark cherry, chocolate, savoury spices and hints of fragrant white pepper
Palate: On the palate, the red and dark berry flavours continue, balanced by smooth, velvety tannins, and finishes with lingering savoury flavours of pepper and spice
>>96 Points, Wonderfully intense, complex and long. The spicy/peppery bouquet is an indirect introduction to the red and black cherry flavours of the palate. It's only medium-bodied, and the tannins aren't the least bit aggressive. The vinification is AAA in attention to detail.
