Vandenberg Six Brothers Shiraz 2021
Fine Shiraz from the Great Western district in Victoria. This is dark magenta in colour. Powerful and richly flavoured with enticing aromas and some serious depth. Cassis, beef stock, animal hides, new leather, soy and chocolate – there is good complexity here. For those looking to a cool climate Shiraz, moving from the big, bold and ripe examples from the Barossa and McLaren Vale, this is ideal. Layered, balanced, intense and with silky tannins, there is serious length as the palate moves more to flavours of blueberries and licorice. This has a good decade ahead of it.
