The 2012 Tier 1 is a Shiraz/Cabernet Sauvignon blend, an Australian classic. Selected to show complexity, structure and intensity, this wine still demonstrates the trademark Hemera Estate elegance. A dark, spicy, brooding nose opens up with blood plum, new leather and elegant charry oak notes. A fine, driven palate displays vibrant black cherry compote, dark plum and blackberry enveloped in a rich dark chocolate ganache.
The combination of long fine tannins and subtle oak influence gives a structure of great balance and length. This is a wine that has the power and intensity to age with dignity.
