'Puritan' Shiraz {no added preservative} 2017

Very deep, saturated, youthful purple colour, and the aromas are very young and raw: it’s a baby wine which still retains some banana-like fermentation esters. Black plums, blackberries, sooty coal-dust and hints of graphite. The tannins are ample but soft and smooth, and the wine is remarkably approachable in its extreme youth.
