Scarce Earth Chanticleer Single Vineyard Shiraz 2011

Deep red/purple colour. rich chocolate and mocha aromas to the fore. A meaty, vegetable edge in the background. A big, full-bodied and chewy textured wine, with lots of weight and alcohol and grip. Massive, dense, concentrated and needs much more time. Tremendous length and tannin structure. Impressive stuff. Has the makings of a great bottle in time. Scarce Earth bottling.
