Wine of the Week AU
Ross Hill Pinnacle Series Shiraz 2015, Orange, AUD $45
Fragrant and inviting with excellent depth of flavour, perfectly judged oak, integrated acidity and ripe, balanced tannin. The integrity of the fruit, which is in the red sphere, is highly impressive, and the wine shows poise and clarity. Aromas of cherry clafoutis and gentle spice. The bright raspberry and mulberry flavours are simply delicious, and although satisfying now, the wine will greatly benefit from time in the cellar.
An outstanding shiraz, and a credit to winemakers Phil and Rochelle Kerney. Highly recommended. (Screwcap)
