After Five Wine Co. Serata 2017

Made by the team at Purple Hands Wines, this is a blend of Italians Montepulciano (19%) and Aglianico (31%) alongside the Barossa hero Shiraz.

After Five Wine Co., Serata, Barossa Valley, 2017


Familiar plum and warm/spiced Christmas Pudding aromas with hints of jubey raspberry, black cherry, deep rose, cola spritz, red liquorice, caramel, mocha with savoury sage and olive. Sumptuously medium-framed with the deeply fruited Shiraz counterpointed with flair by the acidity and lift from the Italians. The tannins are fine, if a little loose knit. A finish of a yeasty darkness lasts long. Plenty of charm and drinkability from this unique blend.

RRP: $45
Alc: 13.2%
Rating: 18/20 (92/100)
