2013 McWilliam’s Appellation Series Hilltops Shiraz

imageBoth of these Appellation Series Shiraz/Syrahs incorporate 15% whole bunches. They aren’t stalky wines but I admire the input with regards to aroma and structure.

More density of fruit than the Canberra expression. Red and dark cherries, plums, dark chocolate and coffee beans with cinnamon and pepper seasoning. Wholemeal bread and sausages to smell and taste. Lush in the mouth but possesses laudable form. Acid and fine, chalky-stalky layered tannins work in unison to articulate the flavours. I’m a fan. 93
