Corana Shiraz 2020
Nothing wrong with a good cheapie, and this is certainly a good cheapie. Not for deep consideration by your wine geek friends, but crack a bottle to enjoy with the Friday night footy or to share with a good pizza or barbeque. All that said, when the fine print says that a gentleman named Oliver Crawford is the winemaker, you can be certain that this will be good stuff. Under cork, this is a deep garnet and has a nose offering notes of woodsmoke and dark berries. There are also touches of dry herbs and leather. Fresh and offering some grip, the palate sees the emergence of blackcurrant and raspberry characters. A wine of medium length, carried by a flick of bright acidity. Now for the next two to three years. A perfectly pleasant cheapie, built to enjoy.
