The Prestigious – Royal Phoenix Shiraz 2016 Royal Phoenix Range Label
The Prestigious - Selected from the oldest vines on the property. Our prestigious Royal Phoenix Shiraz embodies old vine material that has had time to integrate into its local conditions and flourish giving it a superb intensity. Royal Phoenix Shiraz, in its complexity and many layers of flavours, reflects the long history of the vines, the unique terroir and a profound attitude to wine making. It induces a moment of contemplation.

Bright, deep pink-purple. Moderate chocolate, with plums and cooked raspberries over light vanilla on the nose, flavours of raspberries and light chocolate with light, very fine tannins. Dry, moderate to high acid and alcohol precede an exceptionally long length.
