Cool-climate shiraz

Moppity Vineyards Estate Shiraz 2016, Hilltops, AUD $35

Wafting redcurrant aromas with a little background savouriness. The palate is supple and balanced with intense cherry flavours; the tannins are fine and the acidity bright. A lovely example of cool-climate shiraz. (Screwcap)
