Pyrenees, Victoria, Australia. 14%
This is a beautifully balanced shiraz, pristine and polished. Not at all like the solid, tannic Taltarni shiraz of the late 70s when they began.
The addition of viogner is noticeable, too much so for me. There is a floral, rose, character to this wine that I really don’t expect in Shiraz. With age I think this will fade, the wine will fatten, and the shiraz and terrior will assert itself more.
If you like fresh, graceful, elegant shiraz/viogner then drink now. For more flavour and character wait a few years.
