Balgownie Estate Rock Block Bendigo Shiraz 2015

One of three single block releases from Balgownie Estate. All three are generous - certainly nothing held back in that department that's for sure.

A more than respectable wine pipped by the class of the Railway and Centre Block releases.
Cedar, black olive, cola, plums, dark berry fruit. Some cured meat too. There's a tension in the mouth which time should release. Chalky and dusty tannins to finish. Good going but for the same money I'd take the Railway Block.

Drink 2019 to decade+
