Mitchell Harris Shiraz 2013, Pyrenees, AUD $35-$38
The colour is deep red/purple and it smells of blackberry with a super-ripe, almost jammy overtone. Full-bodied and dense, with luscious, sweetly ripe fruit partnered with mouth-coating tannins. Dense texture; almost opulent mouth-feel. (13.8 per cent alcohol; screw-cap)
