"Here, as we know, Shiraz gets cosy with small amounts of Viognier, Mataro and Marsanne to produce the Dry Red Wine No2. An iconic wine.
To get the pejoratives out of the way, oak is a little overt and the wine pulls up a little shorter than expected, but the shape, detail, complexity, personality, elevate the wine beyond those footnotes. Scents of dark cherry, woody spice, new leather, floral things, white pepper. Lovely fragrance. The palate shows fine, shapely tannin, a little gritty but holding the wine to a lithe medium weight. There’s flavoursome dark fruit characters, spice, earthy notes too. Indeed, the textural experience is superb, and I could dive into that long and true. It’s an excellent wine, full of interest."
