Blackbilly 2017 Shiraz
Colour: Deep rich purple with lively brightness

Blackbilly 2016 Old Vine Grenache
Colour: Deep red magenta with a brick red, light purple hue.
Nose: Ripe and fleshy invoking memories of Turkish delight, pot pourri and underlying raspberry fruit notes. Signs of oak maturation by way of a light cedar oak note but shows remarkable freshness.
Palate: A firm, tannic palate with some drying oak complexity. Quite fruity with integration and a long crisp finish and excellent length of flavour persistence. A hint of dark chocolate bitterness adds complexity.
