Red Deer Station 50 Barossa Valley Shiraz 2018


This is a cracker, for me as good as anything I have seen under the Red Deer label. No doubt, coming from such a stellar vintage helps. This is dark garnet in colour. There is an extra level of richness and ripeness here. Serious concentration, but appealing balance and freshness. Chocolate, coffee beans, spices, cassis and vanillin notes. A supple, ripe palate through to plush tannins. This is delicious, but very much in the big bold style. The palate just oozes chocolate and very good length here. Like this a lot, but it is for those who enjoy this big, ripe style of red. Now for ten years.
