Rock of Wisdom Superfly Shiraz 2017

Rock of Wisdom wines each come with their own little guidance note, a pearl of wisdom if you like. This is perhaps the only wine in which I disagree with the said guidance note: "This is a wine that will make you want to strut (you know you want to)".

Whilst it's all primary, with a suggestion of funk and yeasty top notes sitting up there, it's also raw -purple in colour, unadorned by little.

Medium bodied, supple and lithe - and that's why I disagree with it's own 'user instruction', for I found it so easy going in nature that I just wanted to settle back with it, enjoy it's company in a casual setting, get to know it a little further.

A little chew of tannin, black fruits in support. It's an open and loose vibe to this wine, offering little resistance as it makes its way down the hatch. 89
