Journey's End The Cape Doctor Shiraz 2005

Product code: 13JOUR6B2005

The fruits on the nose are fragrant strawberry, underpinned by fleshier bramble and mocha. The palate is packed with strawberry and mulberry, spiced by black pepper and intriguingly complex. The richness of the flavours is balanced by some fresh raspberry giving a lighter feel to the finish.
