Brokenwood Shiraz 2016

2016 started wet through January before a dry February allowing colour and flavour to fully develop. The hand picked fruit for this wine comes from the esteemed Graveyard vineyard.

Brokenwood, Shiraz, Hunter Valley, 2016

Understated, but exotic perfume with rose petals, milk chocolate, earthy stemmy violets, blackberry hints, spiced plums and red currants. A medium to full body with peppery spice underpinning a polished yet handsome tannin profile. Purple and red fruits dominate the profile and fit right into the flavoursome notch. Modern, elegant and immediately impresses right from the first opening. A classy release.

RRP: $50
Alc: 13.5%
Rating: 18.25/20
