Golden Grove Shiraz 2013

There are plenty of alternate varieties coming from Golden Grove and smashing it at the moment. So to see a traditional variety doing well says a lot about what is happening at the winemaker's hands.

Savoury and dark fruit aromas engaged me more than I predicted. Some fruit sweetness on the palate is apparent but there's a terrific depth to the wine. A granite minerality evident, but those dark fruits really kick in on the palate. Depth a plenty with blackberry and a spice ripple. A deliciously long finish hangs large. That give me more sensation if you know what I mean. Chalky tannins to finish. Well priced too.

Medium term cellaring.

Very good.
