Knee Deep Birdhouse Shiraz 2019


Margaret River shiraz so often falls into the shadow of the more illustrious cabernet, but done well, it can be a very fine wine. This one is done exceedingly well and must surely sit among the top examples from this region. Colour of blacks and purples. It is fine boned with a gentle wrap of flesh. Black fruits, spices, cloves and chocolate. This has both focus and length. Good intensity and, as always with wines from this producer, it is on the elegant side, as much as a richly flavoured shiraz can be. Fine tannins, well balanced; a lovely wine for drinking now or any time over the next 6 to 8 years.
