Charles Melton 'Voice of Angels' Shiraz 2018
96/4% shiraz/riesling from Mount Pleasant. Co-fermented, 10% whole bunches. Aged 30 months in 100% new French oak barrels. By contrast with the might of the Barossa, it may seem counterintuitive to throw 100% new oak at this spicy Adelaide Hills fruit, but the marriage here is exemplary. Plush black plum and black cherry fruit sits comfortably in a finely crafted French oak framework, uniting in a finish of great line and length. Drink to 2028. 95 Points.
