Soul Growers Slow Grown Shiraz 2014
This screams 'hello Friday' from the rooftops. Kick back and unwind with this to soothe the soul (pardon the pun).
A wine which reeks of traditional Barossa charm - no fining or filtration, 50% new French oak, plus a big ass heavy bottle you can re-use to get some bicep and tricep definition the next morning.
Handfuls of dark fruit, red berries, Caramelo Koala oak. A savoury fleck plays its hand late but the rich and generous delivery is what you'd queue up for. Uber cool swagger with smooth lines, the oak pokes through a little more than I'd hope but this is built for the long haul so it will settle without doubt.
Clever Shiraz, happiness awaits.
Drink now but will cellar long term.
94/100 - Very good+
