Hesketh Midday Somewhere Shiraz 2012
Colour: Dark cherry red with bright purple hues. Aroma: Dark berry fruits, mocha, vanilla, cedar and coffee with hints of dried herbs. Palate: Generous and ripe, but with a seam of spicy elegance which has been retained by not allowing the fruit to over ripen. Hints of vanilla from the American oak complements the dark chocolate and spicy licorice on the finish. Primary fruit and oak flavours are balanced neatly with natural acidity and soft tannins, to provide restraint and elegance to the persistent finish.
