Patrick Joanna Shiraz 2013


The best wine coming out of Wrattonbully? See for yourself. 

What a treat it was to watch this unfurl over a few days. Coconut and cedar oak, soft plummy fruit and generous dark berries are the bones behind this delicious wine. 

There's still a vibrancy about it's medium to full bodied delivery yet at the same time it seems to be in a state of flux as it shifts gear to aged wine territory with seven years already under its belt. Having seen 28 months in new American and second use oak, a milk chocolate creaminess and a faint lick of sweetness tick away. A ribbon of vanilla muses through unfettered before a shimmer of fine spices run long threads to a sustained finish. Fine, dusty tannins seem to be moving toward a more powdery presence as well. Delightful drinking hands down. 

Drink to ten years+
