Lip-smacking shiraz

Thomas-Kiss-Shiraz-2014Thomas Wines Kiss Shiraz 2014, Hunter Valley, AUD $75

This subtly powerful wine begs to be cellared. Clean berry, spice and earth aromas, a kiss of oak and a hint of mint. Full-bodied but smooth, with understated power, supple tannins and gently handled oak. Great intensity married to elegance. (Screwcap)
