Cape Mentelle Shiraz 2020
A Shiraz that simply doesn’t stop from start to finish. This ’20 Shiraz has energy plus. Densely packed in ripe, sweet flavours of dark berries, plum, layers of dark toasted spices, aniseed, a hint of savoury tapenade and vanillin oak. Offers plenty of drive through the palate, fleshing out across the middle, building in flavour and texture as it goes. So smooth. Carries Margaret River richness and impressive depth propelled, in part, by bountiful fruit and in part by oak. The wine saw 15 months maturation in oak. Definitely a larger than life personality.
