Andevine Reserve Hilltops Shiraz 2018

Cited as being sourced from the "Kylmorn" vineyard in Young (typically Hilltops & Young are co-referenced as the GI). 

Andevine is Andrew Leembruggen (ex McWilliams, Drayton), a winemaker with a passion for both the Hunter and the cooler NSW high country.

Blackcurrant pastille fruit, sweeter accented red in the mix, twists of black pepper the seasoning. Cool, graphite-like tannin, subtle cassis and a modicum of violet. It's fine, cool and dark-fruited. 

Hints of black peppercorn, touch bramble spice. A solid cool climate Shiraz here, effortless in its delivery. 92
