Flaxman Paladin Shiraz 2011

'Paladin' meaning hero or supporter and so the wine is so named to reflect the status of Shiraz in the region.

Juicy, gummy, berry-driven aroma.  In part elegant, in part playful, youthful.  Fresh and fruity with a little wilder undertone.

Juicy driven entry, edged with a little spice.  There's also the presence of a harder, stalky edge to the wine.  Drying tannin to finish.  All up, it's easy going and slurp-able - uncomplicated.  89 - Good
