Jasper Hill La Pleiade Shiraz
La Pleiade 2012
‘The clear, full crimson-purple colour has that intangible quality that promises much, the expectations more than fulfilled on the bouquet and palate. This is a beautifully wrought (I would use ‘crafted’ but that is nauseously overused in marketing blah) medium-bodied wine, effortlessly uncoiling its array of red fruits through the length of the palate, an exercise in restrained elegance. Drink to 2035.’ 97 points, James Halliday, August 2016.
