Tar & Roses, Shiraz, Heathcote, 2019
Deep purple in the glass with bright rim. Dark, herbal influenced classic Shiraz: deep blood plum, dark chocolate (with a hint of Rum n’ raisin), blonde oak, fresh earth, magnolia and fennel. Medium-full bodied, quality plush fruit with a pleasing chocolatey richness and carrying a straight vein of acidity that impels and drives. Easy, drying tannin that supports and emphasises the fruit. Easy drinkability.
Rating: 17.75/20 (91/100)
