Rich intense aromas of black cherries and white pepper, oh so Northern Rhône on the nose. Medium bodied with fragrant, floral flavours and a touch of garrigue and lavender. At it develops more savoury notes come out with cured meats that linger on the slightly tannic finish. Exemplary cool climate Australian Shiraz.
Provenance Wines Ironstone Shiraz 2018, Geelong, 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.
