Koonowla Reverence Clare Shiraz 2019
The three vineyards used for this thoroughly enjoyable Shiraz hail from Auburn (two) with the final component from the legendary Armagh sub-region. Maturation was in French oak barrels. The colour here is an opaque maroon. Red fruits are to the fore with hints of dried herbs, cranberries, delicatessen meats, mushrooms and raspberries – the red fruit notes considered typical of the Auburn sub-region. A supple texture leads to a deceptive grip showing fine if slightly firm tannins and a good line of acidity runs the length. A savoury style to be enjoyed over the next four to six years.
