Bacchant (bac·chant) 1. A follower of Bacchus, the Roman god of wine. 2. A drunken reveller.
Low yielding, hand pruned and hand picked, this reserve Shiraz underwent a wild yeast open vat ferment and two years in new and two-year old French barriques.
This wine delivers a sophisticated nose with a complex palate of berries and spice. Drink now or until 2033.
The fragrant bouquet leads into a bright and lively medium-bodied palate, with spicy red fruits and well-integrated French oak, the tannins appropriately fine. Scores for its elegance ... 94 points.
