TURNERS CROSSING SHIRAZ 2008
Lifted dark and intense blue and blackberry fruits dominate the bouquet with No overt jamminess and with some nuances of savoury black pepper and spice. Ripe and rich in flavour, the mixed fruits and spices are apparent and are framed in rich gentle but firm concentrated tannins and integrated French and Hungarian oak. The sandy red soils enriched with limestone contribute to the deep fruits and earthy notes, which add further richness and complexity to the wine. Amongst the intense fruit is lively integrated acidity. Together, all the components will develop with some bottle age to produce a classical rich Bendigo Shiraz.
