Origin: Barossa Valley
Region: South Australia
Style: Full-bodied red wine aged in new French oak
Deep violet in the glass. Bit of reduction on the first sniff, so you’ll need to pour this straight into a decanter. Opens to aromas of black fruit and some sweet oak spices. Full-on rich body that just punches you straight (in a good way). Everything is in balance here, but could use a few months to mellow down in our opinion. Still takes the cake as one of the best value Shiraz on the market.
