Raidis Estate Wild Goat Shiraz 2012

Steve Raidis has tamed a wild one, and what a cracker it is! Further more, this is Steve's first go at whipping out a Shiraz. Take a bow.

The story: Steve planted this vineyard which went wild and out of control - hello Wild Goat. A little TLC and the end result is very good indeed.

Medium bodied, this is smashable juice. Dark fruit, mintiness and chocolate with vanilla chipping away in the background. It's interesting how the Coonawarra Cabernet mint character has snuck its way in here adding value ever so subtly.

Super soft and velvety smooth, your glass is gone in no time, as the length hangs on for what seems an age.

A great debut and well priced.
