Meerea Park Black Shiraz 2017
It still feels quite raw and time in bottle will enable this to settle down. After a few days of tasting, it relaxed marginally so a long life ahead is certain.
There's plenty going on, that's for sure, but I didn't think it was meshing together as best it could. Black and tilled earth, hazelnuts, coffee grounds, blackcurrants, blackberries, plums, licorice and coffee cream all waft from the glass. To taste it's soft and fine with blackberry fruit prominent. Black tea tannins cover the palate, but in essence, it's still quite tense with the noose from the acid held tight.
Find a dark spot and put this to sleep and have a looksy in 2025 - about the time I'd like to revisit it.
