Oakdene William Shiraz
Deep red purple.
Highly perfumed nose of white pepper, spice and abundant black and red fruits leading to slightly sappy whole bunch notes.
Medium-bodied palate, with savoury dark berry fruit characters, licorice, spice and white pepper notes. Ripe tannins and well-integrated French oak. Balanced acidity, and a long savoury finish.
Highly enjoyable now, or cellar over the next 5 to 15 years.
