Drop Zone Shiraz 2020
Shiraz from McLaren Vale which underwent a range of different fermentation methods, to increase the complexity of the wine before maturation in American oak. Dark red hue. There are notes of aniseed, warm earth, coffee grinds, plums, cloves and red fruits with a touch of truffles. This is quite muscular, as befits the vintage. The flavours tend to be a little upfront and there is a slightly savoury, indeed marginally bitter note on the finish, though certainly not to the detriment of the wine underpinned by soft tannins. Enjoy it over the next five to six years.
