Hilton Ironstone Shiraz 2013

22.00

TASTING NOTES

Deep plummy ruby; intense meaty, dark berry fruit with good whiff of smoke. Full-ish body and dry, the meatiness follows through, brushed by good acidity and firm dry tannins in support. A distinctive Shiraz destined to mature nicely over the next 5-8 years..
