Philip Shiraz Mount Pleasant 2016, Australia, New South Wales, 75cl, 13.5%
A deep purple hue. Fresh aromas of red and blackberries coupled with spice and hints of blueberries. An intense palate of fresh fruits with a beautifully fine tannin structure. Classically medium bodied, exhibiting true Hunter regionality with its perfectly balanced acidity and impeccable length.
d’Arenberg Love Grass Shiraz, Australia, South Australia, 75cl, 14.5%
The nose evokes all those childhood memories of picking wild blackberries, mulberries and raspberries, complete with woody spice and brambly notes. The palate shows further layers of complexity woven through the sweet berry fruits. Earthiness shines through, perhaps even a suggestion of rich beef reduction, leather and walnut. Chewy tannins complete this generous and complex wine
