Gartelmann, Diedrich, Shiraz, Orange, 2015
Deep garnet in colour. Serious aromas of leather, plum, deep roses and chary toasty oak. Layers and layers of balanced plums and blackberry fruit doused in dark spices and supported by imposing but deftly handled oak. Finishing juicy and dark with a sublime earthy tannin structure. Cellaring this for many years will not be problem at all. A wonderful release.
