La Petite Ferme Shiraz 2016

La Petite Ferme Shiraz 2016

This Shiraz is a balanced and elegantly crafted wine, but yet still complex enough to keep your attention. It delivers dark fruit flavours of succulent ripe plums and cherry while combining with the classic white pepper and warm winter spices like cinnamon and nutmeg.
