(2023) Like its Chardonnay white wine partner in Waitrose, I really did like this Shiraz on a quality/price ratio, and thought it a little bit better than a whole swathe of big brand Aussie wines that hover around the £10 mark in supermarkets. There's a hint of dry, bloody and iron-filings strictness on the nose, but that merges with copious black berry fruits and the support of some toasty and charry oak. In the mouth that sweet fruit wins through, juicy and blackcurranty, with nicely judged tannins, a brisk line of acid and warming oak to finish.
