Lou Miranda Shiraz Mataro 2015
Shiraz Mataro is a rare blend but one I'd like to see more of. I even made one back in 2014, affectionately known as Shitaro, but that's another story. Here's a wine you could settle in with very easily.
Such an interesting wine, although the overt oak loses some favour when casting a critical eye. Look past that and it's a hive of activity. Aromas of cola, sarsaparilla, spice cupboard, cedar and mocha. Earthy with dark fruits, dark berries and a char to taste, there's lots of fruitcake goodness about it. Generous, full-bodied and seated very much so on the mid and back palate, baking spices and flashes of pepper linger on a long a moreish finish. A day on and it looked better again.
