Let’s be honest. When you see ‘2016’ on a wine label you immediately think white wine and possibly rosé being in the bottle. Not Shiraz.
When I saw this I went looking for the permission slip from it’s parents! But I soon changed my view when I cracked the screw cap.
This is so obviously young it was always going to be difficult to hide that fact. But, and a big but it is, this is so very well made you can’t help but understand it being let loose into the wide wine world already.
Incredibly deep colour and the aromas are uncompromising. There’s no option, you just have to love them. The fruit is bea-utiful!! Buckets full of dark cherries and choc coated blackberries combine to give you a palate that is alive and kicking!! You have to wonder how they do it for the cash!
This is a truly delicious wine that is built for the ‘now’ but has enough in it to allow you to be patient for another 5 years or so. Patience my friend, patience.
