Tallavera Grove 2010 Fenestella Shiraz
The Tallavera Grove Vineyard is situated on limestone soils in the foothills of the Mount View region of the Hunter Valley. Established in 1994, the vineyard enjoys a warm coastal climate specializing in the traditional local varieties of Semillon, Verdelho, Chardonnay and Shiraz.
A classic Hunter Valley Shiraz, this wine has a rich and complex palate of red and black fruits derived from maturation in French oak puncheons.
Medium bodied yet intense, this Shiraz is approachable on release and will continue to reward with extended cellaring up to 2025.
"Bright purple-crimson; a fragrant red and black cherry and plum bouquet is logically followed by a fruit-sweet palate with polished tannins and quality French oak. Fenestella is a tiny marine arnimal that long ago formed the limestone found in the red soils of the vineyard."
