Gundog Estate, Hilltops Shiraz No.1, Hilltops, 2021

Medium garnet to ruby. Earthy and forthright. Ironstone, fresh turned dirt, dark chocolate, thick plum cheeks, fruit cake, sweet oak and gunflint. Full bodied with blocky, earthy but well presented tannin structure. Plenty of dark fruit with rustic charm and cheeky clip of regional acidity making the finish still well focused.

RRP: $35
Alc: 14.2%
Rating: 17.75/20 (91/100)
