Larry Cherubino Frankland River Shiraz 2009

£39.99

 96 Points James Halliday 2012

TASTING NOTE

 On the nose, intense blueberry, white pepper and spice. The palate sits well and truly in the savoury spectrum with smokey spice, tobacco and earthiness complementing the deep dark fruit profile. Extremely complex with cinnamon, star anise and white pepper notes. The wine is dense, intense and powerful, yet the palate retains a silky elegance. The tannins are fine and the wine can be cellared with confidence.

A cooler start to the 2009 season followed by dry conditions at harvest resulted in low yield with small 
berries and bunches.
Fruit was hand harvested and then gently de-stemmed and crushed and berry sorted.  Maceration was 
gentle and lasted for about three weeks. The wine was aged in new and one year old oak for eight months.
