Lange Estate Fifth Generation Shiraz 2022


There will always be differences, subtle or otherwise, between Shiraz from the famous South Aussie regions and those from the West, but each have their charms. A fine example of charming from the West is this wine. Purple/maroon in colour, this is ripe, plush and generous with lovely fruit flavours to the fore. Plums, cassis, coffee beans, hints of truffles and chocolate with bright spicy notes. The palate moves more to a savoury character and structure. A wine which lingers with intensity, there are lifted flavours, gentle complexity, fine tannins and a fresh line of acidity. Enjoy over the next seven to ten years. I reckon both sides of the border would be happy to claim this one.
