St John's Road Blood and Courage Shiraz 2017
Mouth-filling Barossa Shiraz. You can't go wrong.
Good fruit from three vineyards is matched with well-handled oak spending time in a mix of 15 months, 6 months and stainless steel. Although it has an RRP of $22, I suspect you could track it down a little better than that. Plummy fruit is flanked by some blueberries, clove and soft fine spices. Pepper kicks on to a drawn out finish. Well weighted, it's a wine sure to match a range of dishes or for that simple pleasure of sitting in front of a fire or a lazy night in front of the television. Good stuff.
Drink now to five years.
