Gibson The Dirtman Shiraz 2022
Named after maker, Rob Gibson, who is not only a highly respected winemaker and viticulturist but a geologist. Fruit comes from both the Barossa and the Eden Valley, with time in American oak. A deep vibrant purple hue, the immediate impression is of generosity and attractive aromas; some vanillin oak is evident, but the dominant fragrances are cassis, mocha and blueberries. A supple and seductive texture with fine cushiony tannins and very good length. This is utterly delicious and should remain so for at least the next six to eight years.
