Not only would I not pick this as a Barossa, I didn't even pick it as a Shiraz. Lots of mineral notes on the nose with red berry, black raspberry and plenty of indications that this is an Italian varietal. The palette is crisp, mineral-focused and fills out with a big, spicy mid palette. The finish is savory and refined and I really like this.
This is, as I understand it, a Mountadam Shiraz by another name. Doesn't really help though as this is pretty basic - simple fruits wrapped up in a slightly rough structure. To be fair not unpleasant but just very uneventful.
