Yarra Valley, Victoria, Australia. 13.5%
I didn’t like this. It has some intensity but this cool climate shiraz just lacks flavour and excitment. It’s somewhat floral, perhaps the viogner has been overdone, or the shiraz just not ripe enough.
And yet this wine has had some stellar reviews elsewhere. Odd.
Note: this is not the Reserve version which is 3 times the price.
