Fresh and fruity

A.T. Richardson Chockstone Shiraz 2016, Grampians, AUD $24-$27

Another terrific value for money shiraz from Adam Richardson: deep, bright red/purple hue and a bold, fruit-driven, slightly floral aroma of raspberry, sweet plum and fresh herbs. Full-bodied, soft middle, firming up at the finish with tannin. Notes of licorice and pepper. Long, refreshing finish. (Screwcap)
