Heartland Shiraz 2018

Opens slightly reductive, veering to meaty pan juices, black fruit with a softer edge of blue fruit. The palate is beautifully balanced, enticing with an almost sweet/savoury mix, both driven by fruit and a complex edge of hedgerow like fruit, supplemented with a just sour tang. 

You'd seek complexity and quality in a wine twice the asking price of this. More than happy to have cracked the screw on this on a Monday night, thinking I was getting a sub-$20 wine. Great drinking. 91
