Vivid and intense

Stargazer Rada 2017, Tasmania, AUD $35

A taut and snappy palate with vibrant cherry, cranberry and sour plum flavours with an overlay of alluring spice. The crimson colour is vivid and appealing, and the palate is surprisingly soft and gentle. It is a little closed on opening but the longer it is open, the better it gets. A stylish contemporary wine for sipping and savouring made from grapes grown in Pipers Brook and the Coal River Valley. Excellent length, presence and energy. Simply fabulous. (Screwcap)
