Cherries and spice

 

APR 20, 2018 By TONI PATERSON MW In CELLAR TALK WINES

 

St Leonards Vineyard Wahgunyah Shiraz 2015, Rutherglen
AUD $80
Light, red-berry aromatics lure you in. The mid-palate has good concentration, with intense cherry flavours, subtle spice and bright acidity. It is youthful in its expression, with primary fruit and gentle drying tannins, so needs a little time to mellow and integrate before drinking. (Screwcap)
