McLeish Estate Cabernet Sauvignon Shiraz 2014

A great surprise packet, this 80/20 Cabernet Shiraz shows attractive aromas of blackberry jam, cedery oak, red and black currants and a whiff which reminds me of this Polish plum conserve my grandmother used to buy.

Generous, there's a puckering dryness to the delivery yet it walks to a neat beat. Fruit galore. Tannins are tight even after being open for a couple of days. This will hold some form for several years yet.

Cellar long term.

Very good.
