Tim Smith Wines Shiraz 2015, Barossa, AUD $38

There is something very satisfying about Barossa red, with all its generosity and lusciousness, and Tim Smith makes an excellent modern example. It is soft and opulent, chocolatey and plummy, but there’s also great lift and vibrancy, with hints of rose, redcurrants and spice. The tannins are plentiful, yet ripe and integrated, and there is excellent flavour progression through the length of the palate. Very well-made and delicious. (Screwcap)
