Gartelmann Diedrich Shiraz 2014

Interesting one here. From the famed/ regarded/ insert superlative of choice, Hunter 2014 vintage, yet they winery saw fit to supplement things with the addition of a some Clare fruit. Not the first Hunter to appreciate some of Clare's charm I'm sure.

Carries some grunt, mint, leather and gamey notes. That's not to say fruit is missing from equation: black cherry, blackcurrant, and sugar plum. 

It's lightweight in the mouth, smooth - the black fruit consistent throughout. Spicy depths, and a gorgeous tail of light-on tannin. 91
