Gundog Estate, Smoking Barrel Red, Shiraz, Hunter Valley/Canberra, 2018
Super fragrant and approachable. Full of clove spice, oak spice plump choc-berries with fresh leather nuances. Silky and smooth palate. Citrus-esque juicy acidity to finish a medium-full body that carries smoky incense hints with just sappy, almost waxy tannins. Attractive and drinkable.
