A very aromatic vintage of Lloyd Shiraz showing mulberry, plum, sweet spice & soy. A plush and full entry that continues with dense and unfurling layers of tannin. The tannins whilst plentiful are fine and long giving great persistence and presence. The palate is full bodied but elegant with some dark floral notes, berries and a subtle ferrous note.
Although this Shiraz sings alongside most rich, red meat dishes, it really needs no accompaniment. Perhaps just a wedge of aged cheddar.
