Rich and toasty

Pirathon Shiraz 2016, Barossa Valley, AUD $25

This is outstanding value for money. It has a very deep red/purple colour and is a big, full-bodied shiraz with richness and structure. It would age well. There are toasty chocolate and mocha aromas and it has density, extract and lots of supple tannins. (Screwcap)
