Hollydene, Shiraz Tempranillo 2015, Upper Hunter Valley, New South Wales, Australia
Tasting Note: A shiraz-tempranillo blend that has hints of raisin on the midpalate along with well-integrated red fruit.
Medium-intensity ruby in color with some garnet expression, this wine has an aromatic, medium-plus-intensity nose of red plum, raspberry and red cherry with hints of tobacco and blackberry blossom.
On the palate the dry, medium-bodied shiraz-tempranillo blend has medium-intensity flavors suggested on the nose supported by medium acidity and well-integrated, medium tannin.
Bottle Note: Bright crimson red in color, this medium bodied Hunter blend combines traditional shiraz and modern tempranillo. Leather, spice and charry oak combine with bright plum and cherry on the nose for impressive complexity. Enjoy while young or after careful cellaring.
