The fruit sourced from the Hilltops region and from Murrumbateman in the Canberra region. The bottle image shows 2017, but nothing else has changed save for the vintage year.
Gundog Estate, Squires, Shiraz, Hilltops/Canberra, 2018
Bruise purple edges to the hue. Blue fruit and sweet berries, cherry, choc, stalky spice nose. Generous front palate before drawing exceptionally tight and taut. Tannins are focused and direct down the line. This is a savoury, drawn, linear, wrapped tight wine with a textural, dry long finish. The blend of the parcels complement each other so very well. Put it down, forget about it for another 5 years.
