Increasingly I wonder if many producers can make a go of Shiraz in the Margaret River. They might be able to sell their wares to West Australians but by and large most of the wines just don’t cut it. This may well be the last one I’m ever sent after the honesty of those remarks.
Over-ripe, lolly-like fruit. Splays across the tongue with a clumsy rasp of drying sandpaper tannin to close. Glossy and commercial in feel. Decent BBQ fare if you find it at the right price I suppose. 87
