Bremerton Selkirk Shiraz 2010

With a nod to the heritage of the Wilson sisters' Grandfather, 'Selkirk' is the Scottish town that is the Wilson family ancestral home.   

On initial opening, this wine was more about the American oak it had spent 18 months in - new and older oak.  Settling down, good Shiraz berry aromatics, with a hint of lolly like sweetness.

Smooth, quite deft one would say, with tannic creep - building, grainy tannin - building this picture in the mouth.  

Hints of savoury spice in the mix too.  Balance, good to moderate length and a conclusion of more spice and black pepper.  90/91 - Good/ Very Good
