Tasting notes:

The Mimic Shiraz is a deep, rich ruby colour. 

The nose is a heady mix of plum, cassis, damson and smooth vanilla with a touch of spice and very slight touch of mint.

The palate is equally impressive, showing more dark fruits, cherry, plum, more savoury damson and creamy smooth vanilla, lingering with structured acidity and lasting warmth on the end palate. 

About the wine:

The Mimic Shiraz grapes are carefully harvested at the moment of optimum ripeness before undergoing pressing to extract all the juice. The must then spends an extended period of time on its skins and temperature controlled fermentation to extract the maximum fruit freshness from the grapes.

After fermentation, the 40% of the wine spends 6 months in a mixture of French and American oak, 20% of which is new oak before blending with the unoaked wine and bottling.
