Blue Pyrenees Estate, Shiraz, Pyrenees, 2018

Kirsch, blood plum, warm chocolate ganache, peppercorn spice and blackberry. A touch of clove, mint and dry kitchen herbs. Tarry with almost syrupy concentration, giving a much bigger experience than the ABV suggests. Big globs of blackberry and shreds of mint over sheets of dusty, drying tannin before finishing with an intense, juicy lift. Gives plenty of oomph for the dollars.

RRP: $27 (much cheaper for wine club members)
Alc: 14%
Rating: 18.25/20 (93/100)
