Halliday 2016 Wine Companion

Scarce Earth Chanticleer Single Vineyard Shiraz 2012

Organically grown grapes were open-fermented and matured in 5yo French hogsheads designed to keep oak flavours (as opposed to texture) out of the picture. Extremely concentrated and focused earthy black fruits make this a cellaring special, not to be undertaken lightly.
