Hardy's The Chronicles Butcher's Gold McLaren Vale Shiraz 2012

I do like the branding on these Chronicles wines but sadly for me that's where the enjoyment draws to a halt with this Shiraz.

Dark fruits, some sweet oak and a sprinkle of black pepper on the nose.

Quite simple flavours with a squeeze of mulberry coming to play but all wash away too quickly leaving a watery like sensation. Grainy and slightly drying tannins are all that remain. Nothing really wants me to head back for another taste to be perfectly honest.
