Castle Rock Estate [Porongurup WA], Great Southern Shiraz 2015
This Shiraz, already almost 4 years old, opens up invitingly both to the nose and palate.
It presents as smoothly well-structured. The profile is evocative of plums, mixed herbs and pepper with a persistent vanillin oak long palate.
The generous silky fruit component is counter-balanced by the 13.5% Alc, savouriness and supportive acid backbone.
It delivers ample palate pleasure now but will support short term cellaring
