Top Aussie Red

Chain of Ponds Grave’s Gate Shiraz, Adelaide Hills 2012 $22

The colour is deep red with a purple tinge; the aromas remind of blackberry, blood-plum and spices, with an overtone of cedar/cigarbox. It’s a taut, elegant wine with a gentle grip and acidity which enlivens the palate. A very appealing shiraz of a lighter, finer style. Now to 2024. 13.5 per cent alcohol. 89/100 (Huon’s Wine 360)
