Houghton Reserve Shiraz
Bright crimson with purple hues. The bouquet displays lifted red berry fruits of mulberry, plum and cherry flavours with a subtle hint of charcuterie with pepper spice and mocha notes. Medium bodied, the juicy upfront palate displays flavours of plum, ripe red berries, cocoa and mocha complexity, star-anise and Indian spices. Subtle French oak flavours provide an extra dimension and length, nicely balanced with fine tannins and soft acidity.A wine to be enjoyed upon release, with the potential to cellar for up to 5 years for greater complexity.
