Paisley Shiraz Barossa Valley Silk 2021


I suspect that dubbing the Shiraz as ‘Silk’, would make the Mataro extremely envious with ‘Denim’? At least Grenache got ‘Velvet’. Anyway, the wine is a dark maroon hue with aromas of chocolate, black olives, cocoa powder, black cherries, leather, bay leaves, and licorice with hints of blackcurrants as well. Very fine balance and excellent length, the tannins are indeed silky (have you ever heard tannins described as denim-y?). This is delicious with an overload of chocolate emerging on the palate. Now for the next eight years.

Variety: Red Wine, Shiraz
