And onwards with wines I don’t try enough. Ugh studying. I’ve decided blueberries are my “tell” for Syrah/Shiraz is and ripeness/caramel tells me it’s Australia. Plus tannins no matter where made. I remain a Francophile though Eight Arms Cellars makes some cool Syrah blends (the Tentacle not the octopod) but I can’t say I dig Shiraz. Tho I respect this. Could be good with chocolate covered caramel bites. But I have no werthers alas.

Deep, full and fresh. Fruit character is a little flat, but classic overall.

This a very good value Shiraz. Blue fruits leap out of the glass with light spice & violets on the nose. The palate is; fresh, ripe blueberries, wild mixed berries. The fruits start ripe and juicy and then give way to bigger than expected tannins at this price point. Violets shine. Mid intensity minerality with nice round acidity and finish.

Like any ‘9.0’ wine, patience and a lot of swirling is needed to appreciate it!
