Gundog Estate Marksman's Shiraz 2017
From a fine Canberra vintage comes this superb Shiraz oozing class and charisma.
A wine which takes you into the confines of the pleasure dome where you do nothing but sit back and relax and be a little indulgent.
The fruit was sourced from three Canberra vineyards and saw 30% new French oak puncheons.
Scents of violets, dried red flowers and blue fruits whisk you to higher places. Laced with flecks of earth, ribbons of milk chocolate are entwined with nutmeg, dried herbs, and the faintest touch of clove. Waves of fruit lap at your feet ensuring happiness flow at ease. Dusty and cocoa-like tannins are soft and sit atop like pillows of pleasure.
A brilliant wine and worthy of any acclaim that comes its way.
Best drinking 2020 to a decade+
