Bremerton Old Adam Shiraz 2013

Like it’s Cabernet counterpart, the oak influence is evident here, yet somewhat paired back from how I remember it in prior years. It offers plenty of coconut and tastiness over well presented blackcurrant and plummy fruit. 

It’s well presented on the palate, more of that black fruit. Acid is evenly handled, it doesn’t really show its 15% alcohol, yes there’s a little spirited edge and plenty of grunt and depth.

Like it’s Cabernet stablemate, it could do with some rest for now and will easily cellar for 15-odd years. Slightly edged by the Cabernet for me, but an impressive wine nonetheless 92

Tasted on: Saturday 2nd July, a Root day
Source: Sample
