2019 Shiraz

2019 Shiraz

Coonawarra, SA

An elegant old vine Shiraz from an excellent vintage.

    James Halliday Wine Companion 2022
    James Halliday Wine Companion 2022
    95 / 100
    Comprising 37% whole bunches in the ferment and matured 14 months in 35% new French oak. A lot is packed into this wine, yet it takes everything in its stride and comes out as a more mid-weighted offering. Dark sweet fruits abound. So, too, spices, dark chocolate, coffee grounds and a sprinkle of crushed bay leaves. The tannins have some grit, yet are shapely and ripe. Oak adds some sweet, cedary seasoning, and is well incorporated.
