Dowie Doole DD Shiraz 2021


Wines like this leave no question that Shiraz is divinely suited to the McLaren Vale region. This is from the Blewitt Springs and Tatachilla sub-regions and saw twenty months in a mix of French – 90% with 10% of that new – and American oak. Inky black maroon, we have notes of chocolate, mocha, spices, blackberries, coffee beans, licorice and bay leaves. Ripe, generous and well-structured, the wine offers seemingly endless flavour. A flicker of blueberries emerge on the palate complemented by fine acidity, silky tannins, a seductive texture and good length. Cracking value, enjoy this for the next six to ten years.
