Z Wine ‘Rustica’ Barossa Valley Shiraz 2015

Grenache from Australia - South Australia
Review Date : 27-Dec-2017
Dark, deep, black-hued ruby-red colour with slight purple hues. The nose is soft and full with rich, deep aromas of ripe blackberry fruit along with an integrated amalgam of dark raspberries, black pepper, liquorice and spice with notes of eucalyptus. The fruit is up-front and accessible. Full-bodied, the palate has moderately rich, sweet flavours of blackberry and dark raspberry fruit entwined with liquorice and spices, along with black pepper and a little eucalypt. The fruit sweetness is balanced by moderate tannin grip and fresh, background acidity. The flavours form a rich core with good presence and the wine flows to a lingering, sweet-fruited finish. This is a moderately rich Shiraz with blackberry and dark raspberry fruit with liquorice and spices and a palate with good grip and presence. Match with roasted and grilled red meat dishes over the next 5-6+ years. Fruit fermented to 14.5% alc., the wine aged 20 months in 5% new oak. 17.5+/20 Nov 2017 RRP AUS$20.00
