Kilikanoon Attunga 1865 Shiraz 2016


Hot on the heels of the 2015 release, we have the 2016 Attunga 1865 Shiraz, a museum release. Interestingly, while it comes with a smaller price tag, it remains one big mouthful of flavour as per the ‘15. Ripe, full of flavour and deep in old vine fruit concentration, there is a world of aniseed, black fruits, sweet black plums, leather, earth and dark spice, with a smattering of salami-preserved meat savouriness, to explore. Toasted cedar oak notes on the back palate tend to be a little obvious, but then this is a big wine which is still on a journey and time is on its side. Tannins are well placed throughout on a long finish. Ageing well with fruit to burn.

Variety: Red Wine, Shiraz
