West Cape Howe Shiraz 2016

The light weight bottle is noticeable, the “Lean and Green” trademark results in a 21% drop in glass content. Every little bit matters.

Toasty,warming charry chocolate drops with ginger, plum, blueberry and red licorice/rubber. The palate is supple, smooth and balanced. Gosh, hard to fault this wine with clove spiced plums, chocolate and navel orange citrus acidity. Tannins are fine if not terribly complex. Simply an enjoyable, just full bodied shiraz.

RRP: $17
Alc: 14.5%
Rating: 17.25/20
