Hastwell and Lightfoot Sands of Time Shiraz 2016
Coming from the Home Block which was grafted to Tahbilk Shiraz clone in 2008, the wine spent 20 months in oak.
Cloves, chocolate and touches of fennel conspire with dark berry and plum fruit. It's quite a relaxed wine to taste - it's not angling for a particular personae, just one which merely feels happy in its own skin. That chocolatey goodness sits at the core with some earthiness late. All up, it's a solid Shiraz.
Drink now to ten years.
