BH17 - 2012 Henry Frost Shiraz
Complex aromas of plums and blackberries with chocolate, spice and French oak. A rich and powerful palate with sweet ripe dark fruits and a touch of chocolate and spice. This is rounded by well integrated oak, firm acid and fine tannins.

Fermented over 7-9 days and pumped over 2 to 3 times a day. Pressed and run to barrel where Malolactic fermentation took place. Aged in French oak for approximately 18 months. 14.5% ABV.
