Mr. Deer South Australia Shiraz 2019
More than just a good quaffer, this is deep red in colour with a bright rim. Densely flavoured with notes of warm earth, rustic touches, dark berries and forest floor, leather and dry herbs. This is more ‘old fashioned’ perhaps, than the Cabernet but equally enjoyable. It will come down to personal preference – sleek and modern or a little rough and ready. These are soft flavours and there is impressive length here, and lovely plush tannins. A wine which over-delivers with appealing chocolate on the finish. This will improve over the next five to six years.
