Gnarly refers to the gnarled old Shiraz vines where the grapes for this wine were grown. Pronounced aromas of bright red berries, plums, baking spices and chocolate intermingle with freshly cut flowers and cedar notes. The palate is focused with lively black berries, black pepper and bitter chocolate. Bright acidity and fine tannins give this wine a focus without it feeling overly heavy. The palate gives up a generous hit of black cherry and liquorice. With great complexity, heavy tannins and a brilliant, long length- this is a wine that will greatly reward a few years in the cellar.
