De Iuliis Shiraz 2014

Crazy yum factor. If you were willing to dip your toe into the Hunter Valley 2014 vintage to see if it matched the hype then this is a fantastic starting point without breaking the bank.

Being Mike De Iuliis' entry level Shiraz, this is a mix of parcels from the Talga Road vineyard, Steven, and Lovedale Road.

Super smooth, it's juicy with a meaty tinge. Red fruits cut loose before a dash of pepper dives in for good measure. Vanilla adds another dimension sitting quietly on the flank.

A fabulous example of medium bodied Hunter Shiraz at a great price. I'd happily line up for this time and time again. A bargain and then some.

Drink now but will age for the long term - ten to fifteen years easy.

Very good+
