2018 'Pepperilly' Shiraz'
Iron Cloud Wines Ferguson Valley WA
2018 Pepperilly Shiraz / 95 points James Halliday
colour | Dark red .
nose | Dark berries, chocolate box.
palate | Soft tannins with blueberry and rhubarb pie, and creamy after-taste with lingering spice.
"Machine-harvested, crushed and destemmed, open-fermented, 2-3 weeks on skins, matured for 10 months in French oak. There's a lot on offer here for a wine at this price. While only medium-bodied, there's depth and complexity to the waves of red and black fruits interwoven with tannins and a burst of spices and black pepper."
