2017 Robert Stein Shiraz Nouveau

Shiraz Nouveau sounds very trendy and ‘now’.  Because I’m not a Millenial, I had to look up the meaning of Nouveau and in French it means new, in Old French it means novel so, it fits.

Love the colour.  I don’t often use this word but it’s pretty.  A pretty red with a very nice, complementary purple rim.

This is all about the fruit from the beginning.  Unmistakable juicy red fruits on the nose, maybe even a touch of spicy cherry-ness in there too.

Those red fruits continue and are joined by some plumminess, mixed italian herbs and hint of licorice with a nice addition of savouriness showing up on the finish.

This may seem a bit odd but it comes across as a pretty relaxed sort of wine.  It’s like it did not set out to reach any great heights yet found its ideal spot alongside my dinner of Chilli Con Carne.
