Cunning Plan Shiraz 2016, Langhorne Creek

94pts

 

"“The youthful colour has the depth to promise abundant black fruits, whole berry fermentation underlining the promise. It has the succulence of Langhorne Creek, but with a raft of flowery/spicy notes not so common in the region. Mocha oak adds another dimension, cuddling up to the plump tannins. Hedonistic? You bet.”

"Deep, glass-staining purple/red colour and a fresh, clean, ripe and attractive berry-like fruit aroma, which is not overly simplistic. The wine is full in the mouth and soft, rounded and rich, with lashings of black pepper, spices and red berries to taste. Just a whisker of bitterness, which is OK. A stylish wine."

"All about freshness, this presents its purple fruit with blackberry overtones. There’s nothing heavy or superripe about it. The freshness continues with some rosy floral notes in the meaty tannins. Then it lasts on a simple, clean fruit flavor. A juicy shiraz for grilled baby lamb chops.”

Deep red/purple colour and a herbal, floral lifted aroma which seems to refect some less-ripe grapes. There are violet-like floral notes. It’s attractively aromatic. The palate is lean and nervy, medium-bodied and firm, with a little aggression in the grip. Good wine; even better with food.
