3. Deakin Estate Shiraz Australia (2010)

« Prev Next » 3 of 12
Fresh on the nose, slightly reduced and a bit stemmy/herbal in nature, this does offer up simple, clean cracked pepper and red plum aromas. A bit lighter bodied than most but well-balanced and fresh feeling with well-judged tannins and almost juicy acidity accentuating the core of plummy fruit. There's a lovely hint of spice here and again an herbal nuance on the palate that recalls the nose. With air the fruit gains some darker aspects but the appeal here for me is the freshness in the mouth and the decidedly medium-bodied feel. A nuance of toasty marshmallow appears on the back end and some gentle streaks of oak pop on the finish but the oak is well-used here. Easy drinking bistro styled wine. 84pts
