Quarisa ‘The Great Bonza’ ‘Reserve’ South Eastern Australia Shiraz/Cabernet 2017

Blended Red from Australia - Other
Review Date : 29-Nov-2018
Full, dark, black-hued ruby-red with slight garnet hints on the edge. The nose is a little restrained in expression with aromas of dark-red and black-berried fruit with dark raspberries harmoniously interwoven with subtle blackcurrant nuances. This has a stylish intensity that grows in the glass revealing cassis hand herb elements. Full-bodied, the palate is sweetly rich and plush with flavours of dark raspberries and blackcurrant fruit along with cassis and herb detail. The fruit forms a finely concentrated core which is supported by fine-grained tannin extraction and structure with fresh, lacy acidity which enlivens the mouthfeel. The flavours carry with good linearity and drive to a lingering finish. A little shy on the nose initially, this shows good depth and intensity of blackcurrant and dark raspberry fruit unfolding cassis and herb notes on a fine, grained textured palate with a fresh mouthfeel. Match with herb-marinated beef and lamb dishes over the next 5+ years. A blend of 60% Shiraz, 30% Cabernet Sauvignon and 10% Durif from South Eastern Australia, fermented to 14.54% alc., the wine aged 6 months in oak and tank with staves. 18.0-/20 Nov 2018 RRP $20.00
