Juniper Crossing Shiraz 2017

Hal Bibby, Juniper Distribution and Marketing Manager, is a generous soul and good for a yarn.

The accompanying info for the sample pack this wine was included in was preceded by a great summary (though perhaps that word itself undersells it) of the vintage conditions in Margs.

Behold, to the wine in question, and from the get-go it truly is a riot of berry derived aromatics that sits over an underlying edge of spice, a nod to the 10% whole bunch inclusion.

Even unto the palate, it's a soft and succulent wine initially, before more of that spice character makes itself very well know, with an assertiveness that almost masks some fine tannin on a decent tail of flavour.

Margs Shiraz is overlooked with its more famous Bordeaux influenced friends, on this showing the crowd may well think differently. 91
