Wine of the Week AU

Longview The Piece Shiraz 2015, Adelaide Hills, AUD $80

This is the best shiraz yet under this slightly bizarre flagship label. It’s still a big wine but more elegant than prior vintages, with lots of cool-grown spice, and fruit rather than oak driving the wine. There’s opulence as well as intensity, persistence and drive. An outstanding shiraz. (Diam)
