Spiced and supple

Chaffey Bros Battle For Barossa La Résistance GSM 2016, Barossa Valley, AUD $25

Earthy, lightly spiced aromas with overtones of charcoal fill the bouquet, while the palate is medium-weight, soft and rich, with supple but firmly drying tannins. There are peppery and meaty charcuterie-like notes, too, and the finish extends into a long and satisfying aftertaste. (Screwcap)
