2006 Somerville Shiraz


Tasting Notes

Decadent aromas of mulberry, rich coffee and dark chocolate with a palate delivering strong depth of fruit intensity and tantalising hints of spice. Layered, delicious flavours are persistent, gently tapering into a fine satisfying finish. We’ve cellared this wine for 11 years in our underground cellar providing you with this impressive museum release!

What the reviewers are saying

Deepish red colour, purple tints. Fresh ‘crushed leaf’ and dried herb aromas, bouquet garni herbs, some floral notes. Lively acidity. Intense, rich and lively in the mouth, with power and drive and length. An impressive palate. Long-term aging. Huon Hooke
