Taltarni Heathcote Shiraz

A refined style of brightness and detail, this is one of Taltarni’s top Heathcote wines yet. The bouquet exudes a succulent dark berry fruit profile, fragranced with violets and notes of sarsaparilla and liquorice. The palate presents a shiraz of impressively concentrated, ripe black fruit and black pastille presence, pulling into a classic Heathcote finish, neither heavy nor hard, with restrained alcohol, lifted spice, balanced acidity, savoury texture and finely structured tannins. $26 at Dan’s.
