Berton Vineyards The Black Shiraz 2016

Part of “The Metal” range from Berton Vineyards. Has a bit of bling from some renowned award ceremonies. Sourced from “‘South Eastern Australia” fruit sources.

Berton Vineyards, The Black, Shiraz, SEA, 2016

Unapologetic. Toast, cedar, coffee, blackberry, blueberry, hard gravel. Ripples like a horse’s flank (without the saddle smells) on the tongue. As bruising as it appears and ready to flood the mouth with sweet oaky fruit, the tannin profile is firm and persistent rather than non-existent (which it usually is in a wine at this price and target demographic). Bursts of blue fruit and Turkish Delight. This is a step up from previous anachronistic vintages and value for those who want a gutsy red without it being confectionery.
