2016 Covert Shiraz



In an unassuming building, hidden in the darkest corner there is wine covertly cellared to meld rich fruits with dark berries and earthy spices.

Bulging with mocha and chocolate it’s ready to be unleashed now, or over the next decade. Keep looking over your shoulder as you walk past the cellar.
