Twisted Gum Shiraz 2014


Granite Belt Shiraz coming off a small three hectare, dry grown vineyard. A small producer but one with a big heart and impressive cellar door surrounded by native bush, and of course, the odd twisted gum.

I had this sitting in the decanter for an hour before I even went near it. Aromas of roast beef and pan juices straight up. Licorice, blackberries, I kept going back to meat themed aromas - now it's charcuterie. A few more swirls and sage makes an appearance. There's plenty going on, that's for sure. Soft to taste, the finish is long and drying with a late licorice rush.

A good drink for a steak. Have now to eight years.
