New leather, oaky driven nose with a touch of black cherry. The palate has sweet fruit, well balance, with supple and velvet tannins. Elegant medium bodied wine where the Eden valley fruit seems to dominate. Pre-release tasting so price is only an indication.
Flaxman Double Up Shiraz 2018, Barossa and Eden Valley, SA
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.
