7. Xavier Flouret Shiraz Pemberton Waroo (2009)

Previously available for $18.99
Showing early notes of reduction on the nose. Takes some time to blow off, but once it does there are attractive notes of plummy fruit, prune and vanilla. Light hints of peppercorn and game might be the remnants of reduction. In the mouth, this is rather lovely, light and fresh, with friendly red and blue fruits. Showing admirable purity. This will probably disappoint many Shiraz drinkers who are looking for more power and complexity, but it does show a more elegant and fresh side of the variety. 87 pts
