BROKENWOOD SHIRAZ 2016 - Straits Wine


Wine Region: McLaren Vale, Australia

Grape: Shiraz

Tasting Notes

Lovely mid density color, not light or black with purple hues. Dark cherry and now released as a young wine, some noticeable cherry oak notes on the aroma. Brokenwood had the luxury of being highly selective across all its barrels in 2014 and this wine has benefited greatly from some declassified old vine Graveyard Shiraz in the blend. Full flavored and slight Hunter Valley iodine characters and lots of ripe blackberry fruit. Sweet ripe tannin carry the flavor and bright acid finish. Again oak there but certainly fits the overall structure of the wine.
