Hare’s Chase Ironscraper Shiraz 2019
The grapes here come from various blocks in the estate vineyard, each discretely fermented with twice daily pumpovers, before basketing pressing to a mix of new and older American oak barrels. An appealing purple maroon, there is good concentration here with notes of dark berries, leather, oodles of chocolate, especially dark chocolate, and handfuls of freshly turned dry earth. With a sweet core of mocha, the wine has very good length, fine tannins and noticeable grip. A wine to enjoy over the next six to eight years.
