Shiraz Nouveau

$30.00 GST

Description

Winner of the Alexander Munro Trophy for Best current or previous vintage Shiraz at the 2021 Hunter Wine Show. Limited availability.

A bouncy young Shiraz harvested early to capture the youth of the Hunter Valley. This delicate style can be produced sustainably every year with a focus on purity of fruit and grape tannin rather than age and oak.

Medium-bodied, ripe boysenberry, juicy sour cherry and peppery finish of good length. Share with your favourite roast.

 

2021 Shiraz Nouveau
92/100

Fresh face of Hunter Shiraz here, made, I suspect, more in the Beaujolais style. Meaty, spicy, violet perfume, ripe blackberry and boysenberry. Medium-bodied, ripe dark fruit, perfume and spicy game meat, silty Turkish coffee tannin, ripe raspberry acidity, juicy sour cherry and peppery finish of good length. Quite different, and pretty delicious. Recommended.
