TarraWarra Estate J Block Shiraz 2018


Co-fermented with 2% Viognier, I was expecting a bit more given the quality of the past, but not to be.

Quite flat and not overly exciting, this comes across in some respects as being quite one dimensional. From what is regarded as a very good Yarra vintage, I was looking hard for that varietal spice and generosity. Curiously, it is $10 cheaper than the previous release, a wine I very much enjoyed. Some flashes of dried herbs add savoury touches but the finish pushes me away with slippery silty tannins. Already with four years of age under its belt, I'm not sure more time will aid this.
