Here something you don’t see often, a full bodied, well balanced, delicious Shiraz under $20.00. This wine opened up with aromas of blackberry, blackcurrant, stewed plums, black licorice, chocolate, mint, eucalyptus and smoky cedar notes. On the mouthfeel, full bodied (with alcohol coming in at a generous 15%), and with alcohol this high, this wine is still well balanced by its richness of fruit, flavours, texture, balanced acidity and fined grained tannins. Great length on the finish, with a rich creamy texture and ripe fruit lingering. Quit delicious and easily enjoyed. Drinking well now or over the next 4-5 years.
