Modern spicy shiraz

Xanadu DJL Shiraz 2016, Margaret River, AUD $24

A medium-weight, modern shiraz with energetic red and black fruits and soft tannins. The hook in this wine is the spice, which runs right through the length of the palate. Lovely mid-weight concentration. A highly dependable, well-priced wine. (Screwcap)
