Tatalia Shiraz – A big bold, concentrated wine with rich black currant cherry essence.
This vivacious Shiraz features distinctive flavours of black pepper, rich vanilla, and creamy coconut. Its robust flavours were gifted by its harvest in the Heathcote region, and its time in our special Oak barrels. It will reward the patient drinker: it is a strong candidate for cellaring (up to 10 years).
