St Kilda Shiraz 2012

Editorial Review by Gregory Dal Piaz:

Brushy and slightly herbal on the nose with faint aromas of red fruits and smoky oak lending this some aromatic complexity. A touch sweet at first, then quite bright and rather lightly textured in the mouth. this is a decidedly fresh and juicy Shiraz with red fruit, cafe au lait notes from the oak, and all that brushy herbal goodness from the nose coming together on the palate. It’s easy to drink but not facile, with small but angular tannins underpinning the palate and that juicy acidity refreshing the palate through the modest and everso slightly minty finish. A great wine for a party, this is easy to drink and yet attractive on the palate as well with some tarry accents emerging on the slightly bitter and dark cherry fruited finish. 87pts

Soft and fruit-forward, with juicy currant, raspberry and tangy cranberry notes. Anise and white pepper on the finish. Drinks well with roast pork or grilled steaks.

Very solid Shiraz for the money. Not overripe; there’s some crisp red and purple fruit up front and decent structure on a medium frame. Will work with food!
