Country: Australia, McLaren Vale
Tasting Notes: While it’s light on its feet, it’s still strong at heart. Its dark berries are still dark, and its tannins dead serious, but the whole effect is one of easy satisfaction as much as mild stimulation. This could go either way; a serious lunchtime teaser or a big steak and candlelight luxury with linen and whatnot at night. While it will soften and bloom with the years, it seems very well suited for drinking right now.
Varietal: 100% Shiraz
