“Shiraz, 2016, Harvey River Estate, Western Australia Brilliant intense red. Blackberry aromas, and sweet spice notes shine through from the first to the last sip. In the mouth the wine opens up to intense ripe red berry flavours, and silky tannins resulting from French oak barrel aging. The finish is long and memorable. Pair with deeply flavoured dishes, or hard cheeses.” Professor B, 25 November 2019 https://professorbsays.wordpress.com/
