Tasting Notes

Good wine this, and while I prefer the synergy of Cabernet and Malbec, Shiraz can fill the dance card competently. Has something of a bloody character, along with rose and dried flowers, and for the poor Malbec perhaps a case of 'œEveryone has a plan until they're punched in the face' (by Shiraz) courtesy of Tyson (not Stelzer, but Mike). Blackberry, a saline character here, certainly the steak and spice, camphor comes through too, and a bit of coffee and earth. Supple but dry tannin. Richness, depth, and a certain oomph. Rugged rather than suave, but a very good wine it is. More to come. Gary Walsh - Winefront.
