Totally opaque inky black dark red colour with a deep dark red black hue – Full bodied and very rich, the palate possesses voluptuously textured flavours of liquorice, ripe dark plums and dark chocolate over toasty vanillin oak, mocha and spice. IN A WORD! SENSATIONAL!!
On the nose, there is big, jammy fruit; black cherry, blackberry, strawberry, and a little cassis… On the palate it hits you with a controlled explosion of the above mentioned fruits, i.e. fruit bomb. However, the fruit unfolds in a pleasant way that doesn’t hit you all at once. The mouthfeel is silky, THE Tannins are WELL balanced AND The finish lingers. This is a wonderfully made Shiraz!!
NAMED AFTER ALFRED'S GRANDMOTHER, THIS IS A MEDIUM BODIED WINE - WARM AND HUMBLE JUST LIKE ITS NAMESAKE – AROMA’S OF LIGHTLY SPICED PLUMS AND CHERRIES LEAD TO HINTS OF CHOCOLATE, LEATHER AND LOVELY SAVOURY CHARACTERS. THE PALATE IS GENEROUS AND FULL FLAVOURED WITH GOOD LENGTH, SOFT TANNINS AND FLAVOURS OF PLUMS AND CHERRIES. A LOVELY EASY RED DRINK!!
