Peos Estate Four Aces Shiraz 2020
The fruit here hails from a single vineyard at Manjimup near Pemberton in Western Australia. After fermentation, it spent fourteen months maturing in new French oak. The colour is an opaque black and the nose provides appealing notes of mocha, bay leaves, dried herbs, chocolate, campfire touches and blackberries. As it proceeds, we sees coffee grinds and espresso hints. Good extraction here and while it is a slightly blocky style, the endless flavours provide compensation for any shortcomings. There is good length and fine acidity, this will drink well for a decade or more.
