Meerea Park XYZ Shiraz 2010

I wasn't all that fussed with this wine.

Whilst easy to drink it didn't present anything to captivate me.

Deep in colour, the wine possessed some red earthiness, prune compote and a smokey meat element. A little linear on the palate, the fruit seemed a tad stewed and didn't deliver any vibrancy. Grippy tannins to finish.

Drink in the next couple of years with barbecued meats.

In my opinion, if you are buying Meerea Park reds, spend a few more bucks and the difference in quality will be clear.
