Bec Hardy Easy Does It Shiraz 2021
A lovely, easy drinking style of Shiraz. The idea was to go easy on the components and make it a simple and delicious style, which is cracking value. They suggest that they have gone easy on the alcohol, but if 14.5% is easy, look out for the serious wines! That said, it is hardly apparent as the wine is neatly balanced. Bright garnet in colour, the nose offers delightful cassis notes, soy, chocolate, black fruits and licorice. Simple, but simply delicious, and further confirmation of what a stellar vintage this is. Good structure, seamless, generous and ripe, for four or five years. You could put a few cases of this in the cellar and you’ll have far less to whinge about than a Pommy cricketer.
