A reliable budget choice from the north west of Victoria. The label part of the River to Vine series paying homage to the water source for the vineyards in the Murray river.
Deakin Estate, Shiraz, Victoria, 2016
Glossy plums, red currants overlain with powdered drinking chocolate. A little sprinkle of black pepper spice and savoury oak. Generous without being corpulent, the palate provides balanced red fruits with fine tannins. Finishes with a touch of black olive. Short length of flavour but overall good value.
