Shiraz Clare Valley South Australia
Yes there really is an old pepper tree which grows on the Mitchell Watervale vineyard, a happy coincidence, as the nose and palate exhibits the exemplary varietal spice and pepper characters of super fine Shiraz. Vinfied from the fruit of vines up to fifty years of age or more, the amiable Peppertree is full flavoured and features a soft, almost velvety palate, harmoniously integrated and very easy to drink in its youth, with the quality and structure to mature gracefully while developing wonderful complexities.
