Lovely ripe fruit redolent on black cherries and mulberries with a touch of earthiness. Full bodied cherry driven palate with medium tannins. At $16 in a dozen it represents great value for money from Laithwaites.
Lake Breeze Chapel Road Shiraz, 2019, Langhorne Creek, 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.
