Wakefield 2014 The Pioneer Exceptional Parcel Release Shiraz (Clare Valley)

This premium Clare Valley Shiraz still feels fairly youthful, even with six years of age. Dense and chocolatey, like a Black Forest cake, it needs time in a decanter and then reveals lighter, more tangy red-fruit and licorice notes. There's plenty of wood-spice and cola character from the oak influence, too. The palate is held firmly in place by powerful, woody tannins but the fruit is rich enough to hold its own. Big, polished and fairly well balanced, this should continue to cellar until 2029. Christina Pickard
