The 2013 Oscar Semmler Shiraz is a full bodied, ripe and generously fruit filled wine, showing mid palate flavours characteristic of dark cherry and black berries. The spicy French oak characters and fine grain grape tannins compliment the round fruit-focussed palate concentration. The finish is long, with firm tannins and clean acidity. It’s a wine that will further soften and complex with careful cellaring.
