View Road Wines Shiraz 2013

Powerful, fudge sundae, a little residual fruit sweetness, briar, fruits of the forest. Unmistakably Sellicks foothills/ coastal McLaren Vale, with its big, ballsy, up-front style.

There's a touch of ripeness present, not overtly so, but - alcohol levels unsighted - it's got to be nudging 15. There's a touch of burn/heat, but I like it. Tannin is melded nicely in the wine and it concludes with a cocoa and licorice medley that just reeled me in for more. 

Utterly delicious in its style. The Mrs was a touch more effusive than I. Words not fit for public mind.
