Sister's Run McLaren Vale Shiraz 2018/19 750ML

The balance between richness and tannin, between power and an underlying acid tension and edge, make this red wine almost too drinkable. You could serve this with as much ease alongside an eggplant laska or a barbecued piece of peppered chicken. Don’t be afraid to cellar some of this wine, too. There’s reward ahead.

Colour: Medium to dark body and depth; purple-red and welcoming.

Nose: Ripe white chocolate fruit aromatics begin in a lifted and pleasantly powerful way; some spice bouquet wafts in from deft oak, and then zephyrs of violets, fresh green herbs, star anise, and eucalyptus float by, at once there and then not there.

Entry: There is a superb and beautifully underplayed supporting cast, however, of round, smooth tannic grip, of warm vibrant freshly milled black pepper, of stewed plums doused with a shot of pastis and finished with a grating of dark chocolate.

Palate: The mid-palate builds significantly before a more gentle and rolling aftertaste signs off. Textural and long is a neat recension of this red wine’s personality.

Serve With: Barbecue a sausage. Two sausages.

ABV: 14.5%
