Dozen 2017 Longboard Shiraz
A gorgeous drop - this Shiraz has that ripe and bold Aussie character that have made the style a world beater. Lush boysenberries and brambles coupled with mocha and cassis create a glass choc-full of flavour and intrigue. A dash of new French oak compliments the sweet, succulent fruit, giving the wine a little more weight and sophistication. It's just waiting to be opened, but if you can hold on for a couple more years, it will soften, unfurl and beguile.
