Top wines are marked not just by their concentration of flavour but by their wonderful balance. This wine is beautiful young, pristine shiraz, totally effortless nothing forced, everything nicely in place, including moderate alcohol.

Needless to say this is attractive drinking now but it really is a waste the flavours are still youthful and primary. The rewards of cellaring should be great.
