After Five Wine Co. Serata 2018

Made by the team at Purple Hands Wines. This is a single vineyard blend of Italians Montepulciano (25%) and Aglianico (24%) with the remaining 51% being Shiraz.

After Five Wine Co., Serata, Barossa Valley, 2018


Toasty charry oak over rich plum, dark cherry, hints of tomato sugo and some sweaty, meaty depth. A hint of herby cool mint, juniper and fennel seed. Yin/Yang of rich Barossa Shiraz gives way to edgy, ferrous fuzzy tannin Italians. Creamy mocha richness and very direct approach of elegant acidity for a long finish. A slight step up from the 2017.

RRP: $45
Alc: 13.5%
Rating: 18.25/20 (93/100)
