What’s in the glass tonight July 5th – Shiraz

Hogshead Shiraz 2014

Off Topic: Hogshead Old Vine Shiraz South Australia 2014 – $

And it’s time for yet another Aussie Shiraz. I am loving the intense fruit flavours and enveloping softness of these wines…

Dark red. 14.5% alc.

Aromatic, soft ‘n fruit. Savoury character, with blackberry fruit, lightly oaked, and light on the ol’ vanilla…

Sweet entry on palate. Spice and full-bodied fruit, medium tannins, and a typical touch of chocolate. Quite smoky this one, nice. Medium length, with bright acid on the finish.

I liked the smokiness. 89 points
