Bakkheia United and Undaunted Mourvédre Shiraz 2010

So named to commemorate 60 years of Navy divers - respect.

Dominant cherry and glossy plumminess; has a sheen, a polish to the fruit on display with little herbal tinges lurking in the background.

Full bodied, an immediate hit of fruit sweetness on entry, segueing to spice: Szechuan meets pepper with hints of anise. Lends a 'coolness' to the palate, all up good structure and balance.

Licorice on the finish, a finish of good length - nothing more. A good wine, if a little simple in construct - drinks easily, drinks well. Another I'd be happy to recommend given drinkability factor and price. 89
