Bimbadgen Estate Shiraz 2010

Bimbadgen Estate is a rather striking winery, with a Campanile that wouldn't look out of place in Tuscany.  This Shiraz offers leathery and earthen notes with supporting fruit of cherry and plum.  You've got to appreciate a Shiraz weighing in at a modest 13.5%, and this medium bodied example is pleasingly smooth on entry into the mouth.

Chalky tannin there provides further interest, there's little structure to speak of, but the pleasure derived from consumption is heightened through the presence of coconut and some resurgent fruit.  Moderate length, sweet coconut dominant on the finish, a good wine - easy going.  89 - Good
