The Grapes of Ross - 2012 Black Rose Shiraz

Black Rose Shiraz is an elegant wine style with typical Barossa characters highlighting blackberry fruits, toasty oak and chocolate in a soft tannin finish. I was first introduced to this wine at the South Australian Company Store (Restaurant) in Angaston and have ordered it every time that I have been back there.

This is a very rewarding wine now with excellent potential to further develop in the bottle as is fantastic value (I think that it is well under priced).
