Speak No Evil Organic Shiraz 2017

Syrah from Australia – South Australia

17.5/20

Full, very dark, near impenetrable, purple-black hued red colour, youthful in appearance. The nose is softly presented showing a building heart of ripe, dark raspberry and blackberry fruit along with notes of black pepper, plum jam and liquorice. This is up-front, vibrant and quite primary in expression. Medium-full bodied, the palate has up-front, sweetly rich and lusciously ripe flavours of dark raspberry and blackberry fruit with notes of plum jam, liquorice, and nuances of pepper and spice. The mouthfeel is fleshy and juicy, with fine-grained supple tannin extraction and balanced acid freshness. The wine carries with good energy to a lingering plummy finish. This is an up-front, sweet and juicy, rich Shiraz with dark raspberry, blackberry and plum favours on a fleshy palate with fine structure. Match with barbecued fare and roast red meats over the next 3-4 years. Hand-picked Shiraz fruit, 80% from McLaren Vale and 20% Monash Valley, vines 25 y.o., fermented to 14.2% alc., the wine aged 10 months in 30% new French oak. Winemaker: Corey Ryan. Australian Certified Organic. 17.5/20 Mar 2018 RRP AUS$18.00
