Castle Rock Estate Porongurup Shiraz 2017

Has the air of cool climate Shiraz, a meat and pan juice aroma, peanut husks to boot. Violets, Plum, more of that savoury mien flowing through. Somewhat bold and firm, in a good way. 

Tannin is fine, long and provides generous carry of flavour. The length is quite something, seemingly giving and giving, yielding to none. Whilst it might feel young now, give it some ten years easily to meld together. An excellent wine. 94
