Rolling Shiraz 2013

Rolling Cool Climate Shiraz Central Ranges NSW 2013 – $

Spring? Jeez, it’s a bit too cold around the parts to be called ‘spring’ just yet. It’s still woodfires and red wine season…

So I bought some salmon steaks to grill with marmalade and serve with hand-cut home chips and steamed broccoli, and bought a bottle of Aussie Shiraz.

A much awarded wine it sez on the tin. 13.5%. Purple-black colour.

Smells of boysenberries and blackberries, vanilla and oak. Savoury and lush.

Soft in the mouth, rich black stonefruit flavours, hint of the Northern Rhone in style. But the Aussie giveaway is the brusque tannins, fresh attack and spicy finish. Pleasant tobacco notes and spicy pepper lengthy finish. Great value!
