Rich and fleshy

Tyrrell’s Rufus Stone Shiraz 2016, Heathcote, AUD $25

The 20th vintage of this wine has a deep, youthful red/purple colour and a rich, chocolate, spice, sweet plum and vanilla bouquet, which returns with good power and impact on the finish. The wine is medium to full-bodied, fleshy in its texture with supple tannins and easy drinkability, although it will surely age well. (Screwcap)
