Natural Selection Theory Live Red 2012

© Brisbane Times
Defies conventional review in many respects.  It's fresh, primary, of fermenting fruit. Youthful, exuberant, a vibrant red and black mix.

Slight pastille, undissolved CO2 on entry, it serves to freshen and enliven the palate - gives a peppery feel dancing about the tongue.

Bit of rub, of rustic tannin, short on length. It's not intended to be complex. It serves a purpose, to chill down, to consume and not to keep. 

How to score such a wine? For, to do so kind of misses its point. Well, add a number a hyphen and some words: 87 - Average
