The Barossa & Eden Valleys Shiraz epitomises the philosophy of Powell & Son: to marry the strengths of the Barossa and Eden Valleys together. It has a dark, brooding character to add further complexity to the baked cherries, raspberry preserves and warm plum aroma . The palate is dense and deep with ripe black fruits of plum, blackberry compote.
