Sorby Adams Reverend Canon Barossa Shiraz 2020


So much cracking quality Shiraz coming out of the Barossa these days that consumers not only have endless choices, but they should be looking at some of the producers less familiar to them. Simon Adams has been making top wines from the region for both famous names and himself for many years. You can be certain that even if this producer is not familiar to you, you have enjoyed his wines before. This is his operation now. Deep, dark red, there is plenty of quality oak here, but it is integrating well. Notes of vanilla, nutmeg, black fruits, cloves, chocolate, axle grease (in the most positive way) and licorice. Plenty of evidence of early complexity, which will increase over time. Lots to like here, it is seamless in structure with delightfully sleek tannins and bright acidity. Lingers beautifully, enjoy now for the next eight to ten years.
