Silkwood Estate The Walcott Shiraz 2018
Sure shiraz loves a hot, baking climate and the success of the Barossa Valley and McLaren Vale versions are clear evidence of that. But it is also comfortable in cooler regions where powerful dark fruit is mellowed and its aromatic, spicy side comes out to play. And that is exactly what we have got here.
It’s pretty and subtle with blackberry, red currant, white pepper, freshly turned earth and subtle oak aromas coming together in a very attractive package. It’s then bright and lively on the palate with juicy fruits lifted by savoury complexity. Supple tannins and a lingering finishing make this a great bistro red.
