The Hero, Shiraz, South Australia, 2022


Expected deep garnet with a bright edge. Soft, toasty, charry plum with melted choc and ground black peppercorns with a lanolin/animal edge underscored with mushroom, soya and mocha earthiness. Easy, uncomplicated juice with an acidic constraint constricting the back palate. As hollow as a breath, narrow finish, all bound in contrivance. The juice is clean and bright. Maybe a summer time chill?

RRP: $18.99
Alc: 14%
