Complex spices

Brown Magpie Modewarre Mud Shiraz 2014, Geelong, AUD $60

This is a fascinating and satisfying wine, that benefits from decanting prior to drinking. It has a beautiful deep, bright colour plus attractive black pepper spice and hints of rhubarb and green tomato. Gorgeous green peppercorn nuances on the palate. It is elegant, though beautifully structured and rounded at the same time. The red berry characters grow steadily with time, balancing the spicy elements. A delicious, layered wine with a unique personality that is a sheer pleasure to drink. (Screwcap)
