The key to Amon-Ra Shiraz is the balancing the fruit and tannin extraction, rather than maximising it. The fruit has such expression that the aim is to preserve the characteristics of the vineyard rather than dominate them.
The 2012 Amon-Ra is darkly concentrated, and rich, maintaining poise and freshness. Masses of dark fruits and spice are displayed on the nose and an alluring depth and structure on the palate. Notes of black liquorice, blackcurrant and dark cherries lead into firm, finely grained tannins and impressive length. A wine destined to impress and reward with long term cellaring.
