2015 Sew and Sew Sashiko Series Shiraz

This wine taught me a lesson.  Just because a wine is $25 a bottle don’t assume it is a quaffer or a wine to have on a Saturday night with pizza.

Firstly, let me say, I had been drinking Pinot Noir all week and I thought this would be the perfect segway into a more gutsy shiraz.  Well, it’s not quite a gutsy shiraz but it sits pretty close to it and a fair way away from a pinot noir.

Lovely red fruits on the nose, cherries mainly, but a deft touch of black pepper says cool-ish climate shiraz.  The palate is where it screams “don’t under estimate me as a cheap and cheerful” shiraz.  A mid palate spicy plum influence along with the dark cherries that continue to impress, provide for a richer wine than the colour presents to the eye.  Be prepared to be impressed with the quality and price.
