St Hallett Blackwell Shiraz
The 20th release of Blackwell is a wine that expresses exceptional definition of flavour and structure, driven by pure and precise black plum and black cherry fruit, framed in a confidently scaffolded structure of prominent, firm, velvety tannins. Excellent acid tone reinforces its medium-bodied demeanour and compounds its considerable longevity. This is a Blackwell for the long-haul, and looks set to go down among the finest in the 20 year lineage of this celebrated label. $30 at Nillumbik Cellars and ANZ Wines.
