The inviting nose bursts with ripe raspberry, redcurrant and cherry plum fruit leather aromas with hints of violet and sweet spice. Fine tannins, a succulent depth of flavour and balanced acidity result in a wine that is extremely easy to drink and a wonderful food wine. An exciting wine to lie down too!
Despite seeing only roughly one-fifth new oak, Ashbrook's 2017 Shiraz has a cedary coating that mutes some of the varietal intensity. Some cracked pepper and mulberry notes do come through, giving the wine plenty of interest. It's medium-bodied, firm and savory, yet it's meant to be consumed over the near term (think 4-5 years).
