Silkwood Estate The Walcott Shiraz 2018


Another fine Pemberton wine and again, from a single vineyard. Why is it named the Walcott? Apparently, it was one Pemberton Walcott who fronted up in the region back in the 1860s, setting up a property there. Who knew? Well, presumably lots of people, but I was not one of them. 

This is crimson red. Offers notes of chocolate, coffee bean, spices, dry herbs, dark berries and black fruits. Seamless with soft tannins it has very good length and excellent balance. Worth chasing.
