Bimbadgen Hunter Valley Shiraz 2011

A good Shiraz which loves food to dance alongside.

Roast beef, char, black fruit, and some pepper all throw themselves into the fray. There is a distinct aroma which I can only describe as Lilly Pilly berry. An aroma in a wine I'm yet to come across before now and I didn't mind it.

The wine softened over a few days delivering a good length and fair fruit weight.

Drink within five years and match with barbecued meats.
