Backsberg Shiraz 1997

Deep purple with reddish rim. Combination of pepper, chocolate and ripe cherries on billowing nose. Hint of wild Karoo bos and weave of licorice and vanilla spice. All carries through to complex palate and rich mouthfeel. Big, fluid structure. Very attractive now yet lots of development potential. Succulent, satisfying and best with food.
