With time the full spice, strawberry and liquorice and blackcurrants will develop with fresh pepper tails; at this stage, it is a mean monster with fragrant, gritty, fruit tannins that go on forever.
Eventually, the Grenache and Shiraz blossom as rich, sweet, violet-like scents, with spicy based aroma, before malty, sweet, dark chocolate flavours and crunchy, chewy textured black olive, spicy ginger and long fleshy textures. The Mourvedre adds dried herbs and iodine characters that are very persistent, matched with slightly chalky tannins.
The hallmark of vigorous, fine piquant tannin and acidity continue to reside with ‘The Ironstone Pressings’ after some considerable time, as have previous vintages since the late 1950’s.
The Descendant is a single vineyard Shiraz-Viognier, which as the name implies, is a direct descendant of RunRig. The Descendant vineyard Shiraz expresses tar and black olive, offset wonderfully by the velvety mouth feel with the jasmine and apricot aromatics of Viognier.
Made from vines less than 20 years old, and aged in American Oak, this substantial Shiraz boasts an opaque purple color along with a sweet nose of melted licorice intermixed with blackberry jam, pepper, white flowers, and a hint of toast. With layers of gorgeous fruit, voluptuousness, density, and purity.
Vibrant brick red. Hints of fruitcake, toasty spice and cherries. Rich yet elegant palate, savoury tannins providing structure and finesse.
