Schubert Estate The Lone Goose Shiraz 2017
This Barossa Shiraz gets a three per cent addition of Viognier which plays its role perfectly, adding spicy aromatics to the intense primary fruit characters of the Shiraz. Floral and ever so slightly minty with a plummy, violet aroma. The palate has plenty of tannin support which will come from the co-fermentation of these varieties. The oak is not a major influence on the finished character apart from contributing to its texture and palate feel.
