Cool climate Shiraz is gaining more and more friends. Its medium bodied presence coupled with aromatic fruit and supple mouthfeel makes a pretty compelling case.
This example from Toolangi adds further weight to that argument. And it's a wine that again proves that you don't need to spend big to drink well.
This sways and glides through with ease. The fruit comes from Dixons Creek with a small portion of whole bunches used. Charred meat and black pepper are carried by dark berries and dark plums along with measured oak - a mix of new and old French oak used for eleven months. Medium bodied, blackberries are thatched amongst dried herbs and some stalky feels. Soft, long and moreish, great value drinking for $24.
