Brokenwood Verona Hunter Valley Shiraz

Verona is just across the road from Graveyard and its vines celebrated their 43rd birthday in 2011, rising to the occasion with a delightfully medium-bodied result of restrained elegance. Violet fragrance, black plum skin and pepper accent a well-structured, gravelly and textural palate. It’s at once expansive and at the same time compact and coiled, set to unravel throughout an elongated lifetime. $47 at EpiQure.
