2013 Bleeding Heart Big Rivers/McLaren Vale Shiraz

bleeing heart shirazA multiregional blend with 59% of the grapes coming from the large catch-all Big Rivers GI (akin to the Riverland in many ways) and 41% from McLaren Vale.

Affable, unaffected gear. Blackberry pastilles and plums mostly. A little milk chocolate and spice. Not much in the way of oak, a hint of red fruited confectionary flavour. Vibrant acidity is a tad on the pointy side and there isn’t much endurance but at the price who exactly is complaining? Works just fine. 87
