Clearly defining what many customers expect from a conventional Australian Shiraz, this has sunny, fresh and vibrant fruit aromas and flavors swirling in the glass: big blackberry in an embrace with satsuma plum. Generous in body without being flabby, the disciplined oak and tannin regime pulls the belly taut to ensure the palate finishes clean and lean. Say yes to another glass - especially as it offers very good value. Drinking Window 2021-2039
Wine Tasting Notes
Deep, dense cherry-black. Dark and brooding. Primary blackberry fruits and black olive tapenade notes segue to black jelly bean; soot. A formic/V.A. lift merges with odours reminiscent of the burnt crystallised crust of a freshly (over) baked fruitcake. Caramelised black fig, quince and quandong paste, and juniper add to the evocative mix. Certainly ripe, but not overripe. At once Bin 28 Shiraz. Sheen/shine/gloss/flesh - which to choose to best describe the immediate impression of that first sip? Or maybe all four?! And yet there's an enlivening acidity that drives the palate - a palate-shape of three dimensions - or as overheard "Well put together". Embracing, interwoven, malleable tannins support a chewy appetising mouthfeel. But what does it actually taste like? Bitter chocolate to the fore, pipe tobacco and a mass of dark-berried fruits throughout. Oak? Look harder...it's there!
