Redbank Fighting Flat Shiraz 2009

It's fair to say that you have to like your oak to get into this wine. Oak, pepper, a full-on presentation of black fruits, hints of coal tar and liquorice root.

Medium bodied, pepper and clovey spice; says something that liquorice adds a certain elegance to the wine. Tanning is ultra-fine, lending structure to the wine. Ultimately a good wine, but some odd choices: unusual these days to see cork on a wine at this price-point. 89 - Good

Tasted on: Sunday 14th July, a Fruit Day
