Apparently the 2017 is the best vintage. But the 2014 kicks you in the mouth and then finishes smooth. Bold red fruit with manageable tannins. Best second bottle of wine in awhile! — a month ago
Dark Ruby red in colour. Spicy and peppery on the nose with a touch of red licorice. Barely medium bodied palate showing red cherry, spice and pepper. Love this cool climate style of Shiraz - this from the Porongurups just to the north of the town of Albany in Western Australia. Had a tasting with the winemaker, Rob Diletti, on Christmas Eve 2019. A very skilled winemaker and wine show judge in high demand around Australia. — a month ago
