Shiraz always seems to be the understudy in the Coonawarra red grape pecking order. Perhaps one day it’ll get a leading role…even if in a matinee.
DiGiorgio Family Wines, Shiraz, Coonawarra, 2016
Brooding mulberry and raspberry, melted chocolate with sweet cedary and vanilla tinged oak influence. Ripe and smooth palate. Darker chary oak edges try to balance the primary red/purple berry fruit. Medium-full with plenty of bigger red crowd appeal. Tannins are a touch waxy and coating. Missing some spark for further points.
