Lovely expressive cool climate Shiraz that is black cherry and cracked black pepper driven on the nose. As expected only medium bodied with well balanced acidity and alcohol. The flavours follow the nose with the addition of blackberries. The wine has a pleasing tannic finish contributing structure to the palate. Good wine.
Moorooduc Estate McIntyre Vineyard Shiraz 2018, Mornington Peninsula, Vic
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.
