2013 Somerville Shiraz - Just Arrived (VERY LIMITED AVAILABILITY)

This is the true icon wine of the Paracombe range produced from prestigious Shiraz and dedicated to James ‘Jas’ Somerville an early Paracombe pioneer and the first to plant vines in the district in 1903. Paul & Kathy Drogemuller transplanted these historic vines to the family vineyard and are now their custodians. These 110-year-old vines produce small yields of fruit with deep sumptuous purple-red colour and decadent aromas of mulberry, cherry, rich coffee and dark chocolate that benefit from the luxurious treatment gained from 36 months in 100% new French oak. The palate delivers strong depth of fruit intensity and tantalizing white pepper spice and layered flavours tapering into a fine, satisfying finish. An impeccably balanced wine of great style and complexity to accompany cheeses or rich, flavoursome dishes or chocolate berry inspired desserts, Somerville is intense, rich and lively in the mouth, with power, drive and length. An impressive palate, this will live for 20+ years.  Production 2000 bottles only!
