Bloodwood Shiraz 2014
A nourishing Shiraz as much for its cool calmness as for its savoury dusting of firm leather-polished tannins, impeccably managed oak and dutiful acidity. This is quintessentially Australian. Dark fruit tones pay gentle homage to the Rhone with with a melody of pepper and charcuterie notes a go-go, while the resounding generosity of flavour across the wine’s mid-weighted bow brings it all back home. Rating: 95 Points. Drink: now to 2025. James Halliday Wine Companion 2018.
