Fruit from the Four Winds vineyard in Murrumbateman and from the Wallaroo vineyard further afield in Hall. No viognier this year, 100% Shiraz. 12 months in French oak.
Gundog Estate, Shiraz, Canberra District, 2018
Gives itself up with cherry/cranberry/blackberry aromas with hints of playful fairy floss/musk stick and bubblegum. Earthy kidskin leather glove and cool spice. Medium bodied, suave, confident with delightful interplay of silkiness and the right amount of dusty grip. Pleasing lift to the back palate as the spice has the last word.
