Willow Bridge Estate Dragonfly Shiraz 2014

Shiraz in WA is oft - justifiably IMO - overlooked in favour of the noble Cabernet Sauvignon (and friends). Willow Bridge Estate - from Geographe - could well make you rethink that, not only here with this standout example at $20, but also further up the portfolio with its Gravel Pit Shiraz (review).

Has a very attractive profile, an intoxicating and alluring sugar dusted mix of fruit.

Offers plummy notes on the fore palate - it's medium bodied, bolstered by some oak presence mid-palate. Segues to a lingering spice, pepper and black fruit mix; drying tannin completes the picture.

Tasted on: Monday 5th October, a Flower to Leaf day
Source: Sample
