Glenguin Estate Stonybroke Shiraz 2016

Shiraz is King in the Hunter. From the north west Broke Fordwich sub region of the Hunter Valley.

Glenguin Estate, Stonybroke, Shiraz, 2016

 

20% Whole bunch. French oak for 14 months. Sumptuous nose: stewing plums off set well by light clove spice and backed by blackberry, raspberry, ganache and toffee apple polish. Smoothly knitted tannins that threaten to burst but still allow some give. New wave but definitely has the savoury, dark fruit underbelly of its roots. Holds its gaze steady without blinking to a juicy finish.

RRP: $30
Alc: 13.5%
Rating 17.5/20
