Leone Shiraz 2012
An amazing depth of colour with inky red and purples with intense hues
Lifted ripe raspberry fruit characters combined with varietal spice and hints of pepper are at the fore. The nose has a youthful aroma of red licorice and sweet toasty oak, which is integrated into the richness of the wine.
This wine has a warm, inviting and full bodied palate, which is beautifully ripe & generous. It tastes of rich, sweet blackberry & raspberry fruits and the vanilla oak is complimentary to the chocolaty tannins. A superb length on the smooth, rounded finish is a testament to this well made wine.
The 2012 vintage provided a spectacular growing season of which the Barossa is famous for and hence produced outstanding fruit quality. The wine is a rich wine with sweet fruit, oak and palate length. This wine can be enjoyed with red meats, pasta and aged cheddar cheeses. Alternatively it can be drunk on any occasion and with correct cellaring can be enjoyed for many years - Cellar for 10 years or more.
