Seamless shiraz

Shaw + Smith Shiraz 2015, Adelaide Hills, AUD $46

The best shiraz yet under this label: deliciously intense with blood plum, raspberry, black cherry aromas laced with subtle pepper and spice nuances. Marvellous richness and a seamless, soft-textured palate which is fruit-driven, with barely perceptible oak. Drink now or cellar. (Screwcap)
