Taylors Jaraman Shiraz 2018

This release carries plenty of gold and silver medals from both foreign and domestic shows/competitions on the label, while the full sheet of accolades runs double that in length.

Taylors, Jaraman, Shiraz, McLaren Vale, Clare Valley, 2018

Concentrated, almost opaque purple. Concentrated blackberry and plum with darker elements of ferrous steel, sweaty blood, earthy garam spice with roast coffee beans and toasted coconutty oak. Stays on the just full side of medium to ensure some levity remains. Has a syrupy, sumptuous creamy texture that holds its persistence of dark berry flavour before ratcheting the screws to show plenty of silky fine tannin.

RRP: $32
Alc: 14%
Rating:  18.75/20
