Brand's Laira Tall Vines Shiraz 2010

Not a refined or polished wine, but for those who enjoy a wine of such ilk, this may be for you.

A touch of clove with freshly ground nutmeg with plenty of red and black fruits on offer. Charred oak also came to the fore, but after two hours in the glass the whiff of alcohol was still prominent. Good fruit weight which drove through to a long finish culminating with a talc type tannin.

The acid structure was good but I'd suggest put it to sleep for 5-8 years before it hits peak drinking time.
