Started out quite austere and tannic, with iodine overtones, then, after about 90 minutes in decanter, opened up to reveal warm, grenache-like flavors of plum, smoke, strawberry jam and a hint of white pepper on the finish. I'm not a big fan of Aussie Shiraz, but this was so well balanced and flavorful I had no other choice but to enjoy it! Great QPR, would not hesitate to buy again.

Aims for refinement and achieves a supple balance of ripe plum and currant fruit against a range of sweet spices and fine tannins. Lingers gently and expressively. Production was split between cork and screw-cap closures.
