Shaw Vineyard Estate Cabernet Shiraz 2016

Has a couple of medals to put on the mantelpiece: Gold Medals at the 2018 Riverina Wine Show and Vienna’s International Wine Challenge. The blend ratio is 84% Cabernet Sauvignon & 16% Shiraz.

Shaw Vineyard Estate, Cabernet Sauvignon, Shiraz, Canberra, 2016

Heady, slightly minty cabernet dominant nose with a distinct mineral line and spine. Mulberry and blackberry fruit provide a fleshy experience while there’s a dusty leather component and clovey spice from the shiraz. A little disjointed on the palate, with creamy oak influences over black/purple fruit and pepper. The tannins full and slightly chunky. Full bodied. Needs time.

RRP: $32
Alc 14.5%
Rating: 16.75/20
