Gundog Estate Rare Game Shiraz 2018

Sourced from two prized Hunter Valley vineyards: Somerset and Tinkler’s. Note: the bottle image is of the 2017, but no change save for the vintage date.

Gundog Estate, Rare Game, Shiraz, Hunter Valley, 2018

Elements of Pinot Noir: Red apple, pomegranate seeds before darker satsuma plum, blackberry and fine oak char with an aromatic herb lift. Focused, tight: almost recalcitrant. Tight knit, lacy, savoury tannin underpins bright and fresh dark fruits with a minerally straight spine. Alive and elegant.

RRP: $60
Alc: 13%
Rating: 18.75/20
