Chock-a-block shiraz

A.T. Richardson Chockstone Shiraz 2015, Grampians, AUD $27

A typical Grampians/Great Western style shiraz, at a terrific price. Deep colour and smoky, earthy savoury bouquet; roasted nuts and ironstone nuances too. Full-bodied, deep and dense, the wine has big flavour, firm structure and a touch of gravitas. (Screwcap)
