Michael Twelftree White Hut Shiraz 2011

McLaren Vale, Australia
Chairman’s Selection
PLCB Code# 78085

Dark, dense and chewy, this offers a full-bodied mouthful of blackberry, dried blueberry, white pepper and licorice flavors that persist into a dense finish. Surprisingly well-packed for this generally light vintage. Best from 2015 through 2021.”

Bright purple. Intensely perfumed, spice-accented aromas of dark berries, bitter chocolate and violet. Offers expansive black and blue fruit flavors and an exotic floral pastille quality that builds in the glass. Rich but fresh and lively, with excellent finishing clarity and silky tannins adding shape. A notable success for this difficult vintage, and delicious right now.”

Tart-red-black fruit aromas with cilantro.  There is lots of ripe plum and black raspberry fruit with mild oak.  It is very well-balanced and drinkable now with mild tannins.
