Allegiance Wines, The Tiger, Shiraz, McLaren Vale, 2021
Deep bruise purple. Spent coffee grounds, drowned plums in their own juices, deep raspberry, blackberry, meaty bresaola richness, molten dark chocolate, clove nuance, char and savoury black olive. Offers plenty of dark berry fruit slathered over a carpet of classy tannins. Plenty of length and persistence of flavour. Crowd pleasing with class.
Rating: 18/20 (92/100)
