| A lifted, complex nose consisting of pepper, liquorice, violets, stone fruit, Satsuma plum, supported by toasty oak. Stone fruits and plum persist on the mid palate, while even, velvety tannins provide structure and length.
Opulence, complexity and balance all come to mind when thinking about the Clos Otto Shiraz...With vines planted by previous owner Otto Kasper using a cutting from an ageing and secret Shiraz clone, and tended to with almost antique machinery and a well-practiced hand, the Clos Otto vineyard consistently yields super low quantities with ultra rich flavours.
