Powell & Son Barossa & Eden Valleys Shiraz 2016

750 mL bottle  |   VINTAGES#:  637314

Taking price into account, the GMS and this wine, the 2016 Barossa & Eden Valleys Shiraz, are my favorites in the Powells' lineup. The blend is 50-50, as there was a single foudre from each region used in the blend. The nose is more floral and garrigue-like than the straight Barossa Shiraz, with mulberry and blueberry fruit mingling easily on the palate. It's full-bodied, creamy-textured and rich, with a concentrated, velvety finish that's a clear step up from the entry-level wines. Drink Date: 2018-2030. Score - 94.
