Sidewood Shiraz 2016

750 mL bottle  |   VINTAGES#:  446146

Whole berry/carbonic maceration ferment, matured in French barriques for 16 months. This hits like a thunderstorm after you have navigated the fragrant bouquet and taken the first sip. Blackberry, red and black cherries and plum flood the fore and mid-palate before the whirlwind of black pepper, spice, licorice and dark chocolate take command before the fine, persistent tannins on the long finish and aftertaste. Drink by: 2041. Special Value. Score - 96. (James Halliday,, Aug. 1, 2018)
