This young shiraz has a deep red-purple hue and a bouquet which combines pepper, gunpowder and mineral aromas with notes of dark plum. It’s medium to full-bodied and quite firm, with drying tannins. It cries out for protein-rich foods. Best now to 10 years. 13.8 per cent alcohol. 89/100 – Huon’s Wine 360
