The 2014 Filsell Shiraz is a rich, luscious and thoroughly decadent Old Vine Shiraz that perfectly embodies this classically powerful Barossan style. Dark ruby red in colour with hints of purple, the nose is a symphony of dark forest berries, couverture chocolate, fresh blood plums and vanilla bean with hints of dark roasted coffee, earthy spices and cherry liqueur. The palate is silky soft yet incredibly dense and richly flavoured with sweet raspberry and black cherry fruit flavours, warm chocolate lava cake and sweet Chai spices, with an undercurrent of savoury toast and earthy characters. The palate, while unashamedly rich and powerful, has length and structure imparted by a foundation of ripe, supple tannins that carry the wine through to a long, lingering finish; where the flavours persist long after the wine is consumed. An exceptional addition to the proud lineage of Filsell Shiraz that will delight on release and age gracefully for 15 to 20 years.
