Celtic FarmShiraz Cabernet

A degree of elegance.

Deep red in colour, the wine displays ripe satsuma plum and blackcurrant, a little chocolate and a hint of cedary French oak. The palate is quite rich but retains a degree of elegance with its balanced acidity. It also has a good depth of juicy, fleshy dark berry fruit held in check by some fine grained tannins.

A really attractive Clare red blend which will repay medium term cellaring – say 3-6 years.
