Silken Beastie Shiraz, Nor’wester, Barossa Valley 2016
‘You get a lot of expensive wine in your mouth, so rich it seems viscous, with liquer cherry (which isn’t sweet) and finishes bright and fresh (like an Amontillado sherry, which likewise isn’t sweet). And glory be, there’s no sweet alcohol to deal with.’ Screwcap. 14.5% alc. To: 2027.
