Dark Chocolate | Sugar Plums | Christmas Spice
If you can’t beat ’em, join ’em – Jim Henson
Ah foiled again! All the milk chocolate in the world just won’t do if you want something dark, broody and mischievous. Underlying purity from the vineyard, it holds onto youthful austerity while delivering as you would expect from classic Barossa Shiraz – cool and intelligent – Germanic heritage abounds. Imagine drinking with hard local cheeses.
Great richness with line and length. Dark Chocolate and Sugar Plums this wine is deep, vibrant, fleshy and accessible. With a sweet Christmas Spice finish to cut through the hints of jamminess.
