Why we're drinking this
This is a damn good wine at a great price. It’s less the brutish beast we’re used to from Down Under and more of a refined and forthright reflection of a brilliant winemaking culture. Grapes love its drainage and it seems to impart a unique earthiness and a dusty, mineral quality. You will definitely want to barbecue with this one! For under $20, this wine is a keeper that will last a few years in the cellar.
Velvety blackberries with wild strawberry, jammy blueberries, red berries and coffee, with a dry, vanilla/earth finish. Soft? You bet. Super smooth, medium-plus body, the ripest tannins ever, and a nice tip of acidity. There’s a little nerve here, which is nice to have. But still, softness is the groove.
