Kinsfolk by Mitchell Shiraz 2015
This is a fairly classic and traditional version of Clare Valley Shiraz. It is a firm and muscular wine that carries plenty of fruit complexity but really needs something substantial and meaty to show its best.
The wine is deeply coloured and opens with a solid core of blackberry, dried herb and white pepper scented fruits with a little touch of aged meatiness just sneaking through. The palate shows good generosity of dark fruits with touches of baked earth and while it is ripe and rich there is also reasonable structure with acid and tannins helping to carry some genuine length. Match it up with rump steak and enjoy.
