Shottesbrooke Blewitt Springs Shiraz 2013
I was just drawn into the elegance it delivers. Black fruits, plummy, some meatiness, a bit of chocolate, this calls for s succulent rib eye steak. It's more juice than brut strength.
There's a drying thing about this wine which just makes it moreish. And I go back again.
It drank better a day on so pop it away for a little while. It softens beautifully sitting on the mid palate. A hint of ratatouille of all things steps up. The fruit is soft and then a spice tickle taps around at will finishing with dusty tannins.
And I go back again.
Will sit for ten.
