Gundog’s multi region blend with fruit from the Hunter Valley and Canberra.
Gundog Estate, Smoking Barrel Red, Shiraz, Hunter Valley, Canberra, 2019
Woody warm clove and 5 spice studded jubey blackberry and plum fruits. Some chocolate bar oak and a slick sheen of polish. Spice driven through the medium-full palate with easy black tea like tannins that offer just a little chew. The fruit is bright and at the forefront. Juicy tail and a satisfying length to the finish.
Rating: 18/20 (92/100)
