Community Tasting Note

  • GD77 Likes this wine: 90 points

    January 11, 2020 - Oak dominated and I suspect it will forever. It's sappy and heavy handed but there is some big Shiraz fruit in there too. Smooth tannin line redeems the dominating vanilla oak, acid good but some cork artifacts are showing. The large cork itself was over half way stained via imperfections. It's WA shiraz in a traditional SA mould, for me. Lots of tartrate residue in the bottle.
