De Bortoli Woodfired Shiraz 2017
|Region||Australia, Victoria, Heathcote|
Distinctive and aromatic, with fresh loamy earth, sandalwood and Earl Grey tea notes set on a dense but velvety frame, showing plenty of energy to the juicy fruit core of pomegranate and raspberry. Vibrant on the finish. Drink now through 2028. 2,940 cases made, 500 cases imported.
This medium- to full-bodied red oozes blackberries, blueberries and cherries along with cola and dusty, herbal characters. It's a little rubbery too. Things improve on the palate where a lift of acidity gives the plentiful fruit a welcome crunch, and a soft line of savory earthy tannins provides structure and texture. The finish is on the bitter side.
