Corryton Burge Barossa Shiraz 2021


Barossa Shiraz from a cracking vintage at this price… what is not to love? A real mix of oak here – some new but mostly older, some French but mostly American, and some holding the wine for ten months, the rest for eighteen. The colour is a near opaque maroon with notes of chocolate, plums, aniseed, cloves, and blackberries. Time in the glass sees more florals and cassis emerge. There is good intensity, poise, and impressive length here. Well structured, linear and with fine tannins, this is a bit special. The wine exhibits good concentration for the full journey, and it will drink beautifully for a decade. Love it.
