Contains 4% Viognier. Lovely perfumed nose with a slight reductive earthy edge. The wine also displays a strong white pepper note. The palate has more pepper and a touch of cured meats. Dry medium bodied with plums and cherries emerging on a medium plus finish. Youthful wine needs more time. Australian version of a Côtes du Rhône in style.
Best’s LSV Shiraz 2019, Great Western, Victoria
Outstanding (Score range 95-100)
Often an internationally recognised, leading brand or winery – but not always! Produces a classic wine that is a faultless representation of the style/variety. Complexity on the nose and a seamless palate are an example of the hallmarks of an outstanding wine.
Highly Recommended (Score range 92-94)
A quality focused wine that has plenty of style. Length of palate and intensity are often key characteristics of highly recommended wines. These producers could be the ones to watch in the future.
Recommended (Score range 89-91)
An above average well-made, reflection of the style/variety, which often represents good value for money.
