Red Knot, Classified by Shingleback, GSM, McLaren Vale, 2018

Deep garnet hue with lighter purple edges. Aromatic: soaked plums and raspberries with tobacco, exotic spice and plush rose petals. Just medium bodied, it gives a sense of playfulness with a dark earthy edge. Red berries at the fore leading to a chalky texture with lingering bitter herbs through the controlled finish. A fine blend, each part playing its role well.
