Jasper Hill-La Pleida Shiraz 2012
La Pleiade is a collaboration between Michel Chapoutier and Ron Laughton (Jasper Hill) and is named after the constellation that can been seen from both the Rh繫ne Valley and Heathcote. The grapes are grown biodynamically and without irrigation. La Pleiade 2012 ?he 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 ?rafted??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.
