Elegant Eden shiraz

St Hallett Mattschoss Single Vineyard Shiraz 2015, Eden Valley, AUD $60

A full-bodied and elegantly structured wine, this is a very complex iteration of Barossa shiraz, showing smoky, spicy, savouriness and crushed-rock mineral overtones. It has a slightly austere dryness and a well-balanced backbone of fine tannins. Stylish stuff. (Screwcap)
