Claymore Wines, Dark Side Of The Moon, Shiraz, Clare Valley, 2017

Meaty, chunky nose: with liqueur plum, dark “Plaistowe” cooking chocolate, plum sauce, vanilla cream and cedar. One for the big, dark brooding shiraz lovers. The tannins are twisted and grown through the dark palette, along with full bore juicy flavours make this a value option that will age for many years yet.

RRP: $25
Alc: 14.5%
Rating:  17/20
