Wirra Wirra Shiraz Catapult 2010

Editorial Review by Gregory Dal Piaz:

Deep and jammy on the nose with streaks of chocolate, toast, white pepper, fine herbs and earth running through the core of plum, dried cherry and strawberry fruit. Opulent and lush on entry, there’s an early flush of strawberry fruit here followed by rich, chocolaty plum and cherry notes. This is a polished and plush wine, a bit ponderous in some ways as it’s not terribly well focused but it has the size and softness that appeals to many people. The backpalate is all chocolate covered strawberries before the sweet toasty oak spice kicks on the moderately long and slightly drying finish. This reminds me a bit of a Grenache on steroids. 88pts
