Succulent Barossa

Massena The Eleventh Hour Shiraz 2015, Barossa Valley, AUD $40

Lovely freshness with plummy fruit and a chocolate and jersey caramel-overlay. The flavour concentration is glorious: juicy mulberries, Satsuma plums and a little liquorice. The palate is open-natured and soft, with integrated papery tannin plus wonderful vibrancy and energy.

An excellent example of contemporary Barossa shiraz. (Screwcap)
