Parker Coonawarra Early Release Shiraz 2018


Bright as a button, it looks like Ribena and is damn smashable. Such a juicy and vibrant release for immediate enjoyment.

I recently wrote this article on Coonawarra: More than meets the eye. There's so many attractive and delicious wines coming from the region at the moment - it's not just old school which some stereotype it for.

Bring your gathering to life with a big pour of this in your glass. It smells of violets, blue fruits, red berries and red currants. Youthful and energetic, its vibrancy cannot be understated. A slight tingle through the mouth, its as though the fruit is skipping about before you. On skins for 6 days and made without a splinter of oak, this is fruit city edged by fine earthiness and peppery spice. Damn, I could make easy work of this. Great drinking - bottoms up!

Drink now to three years.
