Chaffey Bros Wine Co SYNONYMOUS* Shiraz 2020

*Because the Barossa is synonymous with Shiraz. Like, for real.

A blend from selected French oak barrels in the CB’s shed. Sourced from low yielding vineyards from “across eight ICONIC BAROSSA subregions.” That’s a bit shouty lads, but we get you mean.

Chaffey Bros Wine Co, SYNONYMOUS, Shiraz. Barossa, 2020


Plush Barossa purple in hue. Has the hallmarks of what you need Barossa to be: choc/mocha and deep plum, cherry, blackberry with earthy ferrous ironstone providing some grounding. Fully flavoured, but not full on. Manages restraint and even a touch of elegance with grippy, chalky tannin driving through the finish. Nothing complex but classily put together and dangerously drinkable.

RRP: $27
Alc: 14.5%
Rating: 17.75/20 (91/100)
