Quarisa Mrs Q Shiraz 2016, McLaren Vale, SA

Syrah from Australia - South Australia
Review Date : 30-Jun-2021
Deep, inky ruby-black, slightly lighter on the rim. The nose is full and fragranced, aromas of eucalyptus, mint overlay spiced plums, cherry pie and tobacco. Full-bodied, concentrated flavours of plums, cherry pie in the lead, entwined with cedar, black pepper, eucalyptus and mint linger to a long, sustained finish. The fruit has balanced ripeness and concentration; fine-grained tannin extraction broadens the palate and very mouth-filling. Brilliant acidity balanced the richness of concentration. Match with ragu and char-grilled lamb over the next 7+ years. Fermented to 14.9% alc, aged in new and old French and American oak barrels for 18 months. 18.5+/20 pts (94 pts) June 2021 RRP $25
