The Hero of Zero Preservative Free Shiraz 2021
Preservative Free is the new black. It seems like everyone is looking to drink a bit healthier, although the levels of preservative in most wines are so small they would not hurt a fly. But if Preservative Free is your thing then this shiraz is worth hunting down as, unlike many similar wines, it has had the Rolls Royce treatment in the winery and also shows the benefits of quality fruit.
Deeply coloured there are layers of ripe and jubey blackberry and blackcurrant fruits with impressive intensity. It is equally bold on the palate with chocolatey flavours lifted by hints of pepper and earth all supported by balanced tannins. It’s got heart and offers very good value for Preservative Free.
