Wine of the Week AU

St John’s Road The Evangelist Shiraz 2015, Barossa Valley, AUD $58

Ripe fruit with remarkable density though there is also a desirable coolness to the fruit. The palate has the type of plush concentration that you only get from very old vines. The oak is in check, and the balance is impeccable. It is completely delicious now though will age gracefully with time. (Screwcap)
