Brokenwood Wines Shiraz 2014

I love the understatement, class and timelessness of the Brokenwood labels. Originally tasted blind in a round of 2014 Shiraz.

Brokenwood, Shiraz, Hunter Valley, 2014

BrokenwoodShirazHV11

Dusty violet flowers, dried cloves, peppercorns, plum flesh, toasty oak. There’s a dark, herbal licorice streak that runs like a leather strop, sharpening the cut of a cured meaty, medium bodied wine at best. There’s an elegance, an understatement. Like when you notice the painting in the corner of your favourite pub that’s always been there: This has a persistence. Very good.

RRP: $50

Alc: 13.5%
