Four in Hand Barossa Shiraz 2017
Another of winemaker Chris Hancock’s creations under the Robert Oatley company umbrella, here sourced from both Barossa Valley floor and Eden Valley vineyards. There’s a lot to like about this wine from a cooler vintage that has revealed over time a more measured and medium toned style in many Barossa reds. The Eden Valley fruit adds an immediate lifted aroma of dark, spiced plum and berry, all of which flows right into a rich, juicy palate with a mildly chewy mouth feel, medium to fuller bodied at most. In the right dining company – red meats, char-grilled – this makes for a very attractive companion.
