This South Australian Shiraz is much more up-front than the other Naked Wines I have tried so far; the nose reeks of ripe blackcurrant with hints of liquorice and pencil shavings whilst on the palate, there's lots of ripe, juicy fruit but with a degree of restraint and complexity that I have found to be lacking in the antipodean wines of a certain other ubiquitous internet wine retailer I could mention. There's also stewed plums and prunes, a soft-yet-mouthfilling texture and good length. Perfect for when Cambridge is in the grip of an early frost - some warming red sunshine in a glass ! Warming, rich and with some initial complex fruit sweetness (but dry on the finish), this would match well with full-flavoured aged hams, such as iberico or parma, salami and sun-dried tomatoes or slow-roast chicken with roasted root vegetables. I sampled this over a couple of days and with a bit more air, the overt fruit gives way to more sophisticated flavours of plums, prunes and pencil shavings suggesting that it will benefit greatly from some aging.


Tasting Notes:

This Shiraz is packed with full, rich fruit flavors. Ripe dark fruit stands out both on the nose and the palate. Sweet in the mouth with a long, dry finish.
