Ah foiled again! All the milk chocolate in the world just won’t do if you want something dark, broody and mischievous.
This gusty Barossa Shiraz, aged in a combination of French and American hogsheads for a new, has great richness with line and length. Await the hit of dark chocolate and sugar plums, the wine deep, vibrant, fleshy and accessible, with a sweet Christmas spice finish to cut through the hints of jamminess.
Underlying purity from the vineyard, it holds onto youthful austerity while delivering as you would expect from classic Barossa Shiraz – cool and intelligent – Germanic heritage abounds. Drink with hard local cheeses or, naturally, dark chocolate.
