Shingleback, Davey Estate, Shiraz, McLaren Vale, 2017

Earthy leafy blackberry, spent coffee grounds, saltbush, rose heart, and woody spice. Focused and direct, yet remaining full with a well laid carpet of tannins. While the oak is there unapologetically, it is used to emboldening effect, potent but well executed. A fine cut of acidity for freshness. A well made, harmonious wine.

RRP: $25
Alc: 14.2%
Rating: 18.75/20 (94/100)
