Heirloom Vineyards, Shiraz, Barossa Valley, 2018
Ripe plum, hints of mulberry, some chalky musk, rooibos tea, sandalwood, nutmeg and raisin. Solid Barossa varietal posturing with well-defined fine edges. Well balanced char and sweet oak with bright fruit. Shows good energy and brightness. Fine example.
Rating: 18.25/20 (93/100)
