Palate Profile

Lifted blackberry, cedar and dark spices with hints of chocolate and aniseed. Rich, ripe palate showing abundant dark fruit and spices supported by smoky oak. Fine, chalky tannins and great length.

Gently fermented in small opens with hand plunging. Matured in new and older French Oak hogsheads for 15 months before blending.

Critic Awards

Yet another triumph for this highly regarded winery. The Unicus story is developing into a formidable body of work

It's a svelte shiraz. It's rich with sweet fruit, mostly in the plum and asphalt spectrum, though smoky oak, vanilla and clove characters play subtle-but-important roles. There isn't a lot of tannin to speak of but there's enough; it's simply melted into the fruit.

Deepish red colour with a glint of purple. Pepper-spice and nutmeg aromas, some green walnuts, the palate medium to full-bodied, lean and sinewy, with grip and grit.
