Aged in a concrete tank, the 2018 Avenue to Gold Shiraz features some strong notes of black olives, espresso and roasted meat set against a backdrop of plummy fruit and garnished with hints of wild herbs. From a top-flight vintage, it’s medium to full-bodied and amply concentrated, but it doesn’t come across as heavy or overdone, instead being silky and refreshing on the palate and finishing long, mouthwatering and savory. I suspect it will drink well for at least a decade.

Avenue to Gold is aged in a concrete tank.
Avenue to Gold possesses a very lifted aromatic and excellent ripe fruit that create a lasting mouth feel, it will age very well for 10 to 15 years.
This wine has a very complex finish which touches on both fruit and savoury details. Avenue to Gold?s fine tannins and acidity will bring pleasure in its youth and allow long cellaring.
