Allinda Goulburn Valley Shiraz 2016


TGoulburn is an interesting region to have highlighted on the label as, these days, it has not enjoyed quite the reputation it deserves, so this is great to see. When you have producers like Chateau Tahbilk and Mitchelton, you do have to wonder why. A lot of superb red has emerged from this region.

Crimson red, with earthy animal skin notes, this is a red for those who enjoy a more rustic style – I do not say that in any derogatory way as I know that there are plenty of winelovers who can’t get enough of these wines. Some brambly notes and raspberries here, which move to slightly sweeter fruit characters on the palate. Good focus and a wine with the potential to go further. Decent buying, ideal for a Friday night in front of the telly.
