Ranked #21 of 133 2013 Shiraz from Barossa Valley
Very deep red/purple colour, very young and bold. The bouquet is all about black plum and dark chocolate, while the palate is essency and rich, sweetly super-ripe and succulent, with massive tannins bringing up the rear. It needs a lot of time. Excellent potential.
Drink: 2018 to 2038

Deep garnet-purple colored, the 2013 Entity Shiraz is profoundly scented of crushed blackberries and wild blueberries with star anise, chocolate box, menthol and violets in the background. The ripe, seductive, medium to full-bodied palate is still quite youthful but open for business with velvety tannins and a lively lift to the long pepper and black berry laced finish.

Allow this wine time to breathe and it spreads its wings impressively. It tastes of dark, sweet-centred blackberry, chocolate, mocha and ground spices but the way it combines freshness and depth is the thing; and then there's the way guy ropes of flavour-packed tannin stake a deep hold, keeping everything in place both now and long into the future. Drink to 2030.
