The key to Amon-Ra Shiraz is balancing the extraction, rather than maximising it. The fruit has such expression that we aim to preserve the characteristics of the vineyard rather than dominate them.
Dark purple with youthful hues on release, the nose is a compelling mix of dark stone fruits, coffee and blackberries. the 2010 is supremely focussed yet rich and rewarding on the palate. The flavours are intense yet restrained, showing brooding dark fruit characters, with cracked pepper hints, some minerality and great complexity. The astounding purity of expression and multilayered structure will allow this wine to mature with elegance or decades to come.
