Wines by KT Churinga Watervale Vineyard Shiraz

Delectably understated, intricately honed, intensely focused and exactingly controlled, welcome to another immaculately crafted shiraz that speaks in articulate tones of chalky mineral texture derived from a bed of limestone under this remarkable site. A linear core of black plum skins, black cherries and pitch opens into fragrant nuances of violets, then fresh liquorice straps and high cocoa dark chocolate. A wine of tremendous old vine personality, which may prove to be the longest-lived Churinga yet. $34 direct.
