SUNLIGHT* by Oxford Landing, Shiraz, Riverland, 2021

Sunlight Shiraz

Bright purple. Ticks Shiraz boxes with malt biscuit, plum and cherry juice, blackcurrant, pouch tobacco, sweaty leather saddle, red licorice and milk chocolate. Has plenty of varietal flavour, even with a fair punch of peppery spice, but the palate lacking drive and depth due to the reduced alcohol. With the juicy finish and you’d be happy to have this at lunch (maybe even a chill?) with lamb salad or an antipasto platter.

RRP: $15
Alc: 8%
Rating:  17/20 (88/100)
