Starve Dog Lane, Shiraz, Clare Valley

Starve Dog Lane, Shiraz, Clare Valley

Whilst Shiraz vines love sunlight, they produce their best grapes when there is a chill to the evening air, just the kind of conditions experienced in the vineyards in the south of the Clare Valley. With intense red fruit aromas and hints of dark chocolate and violet, this wine flaunts a palate of bright ripe raspberry fruit flavours intertwined with dark chocolate and minty tannins with subtle cedar notes. Full-bodied, the period spent oak ageing can be detected in the note of spice on the finish.
