Shaw + Smith Shiraz 2017

Savoury, briary, stemmy, of hedgerow - unsure as to exact percentage - of whole bunch for sure. Throws a fair offering of both black fruit, and with a fine and minerally structure.

Structurally sound, a freshening acidity, giving both length and focus. That said, it did feel somewhat less wholesome and together than in previous vintages. 91 

Tasted on: Saturday 2nd November, a Fruit day
