Shaw Wines Estate Cabernet Shiraz 2018
From Murrumbateman near Canberra comes this Cabernet Shiraz showcasing the great potential of this region for Shiraz and all kinds of blends. The wine has a bit of Coonawarra about it with beautifully pure choc-mint and violet fruits plus sweet mulberry and spice. It is powerful but also understated and only mid-weight, but has fantastic brightness of fruit. There is also the unmistakable weight of Cabernet Sauvignon tannins that give this some serious ageing potential. If you are looking for a wine near Canberra to age, this will go the distance and then some.
Drink: 2025 – 2032
