West Cape Howe Frankland River Shiraz 2018

Still sourced from the ‘Russell Road’ vineyard in the Frankland River region of Great Southern, Western Australia.

West Cape Howe, Shiraz, Frankland River, 2018

Earthy cocoa, plum smears, smoky warm toasty oak slices with just enough meaty grunt to give it a second glance. A touch warm and cute on the palate: lingering red to black fruits with a just medium, smoky finish. Full bodied with stretchy, pliant, soft tannins. Made for the here, for the now..and for food: Was a perfect match to a mid week spaghetti Bolognese (and crucify me now: I use white wine when cooking the sugo) and enough to ponder the half glass left over.

RRP $22
Alc: 14.5%
