T&K ($38 per bottle)

Riverland Shiraz

Dense, inky red colour with a purple rim.

The nose is layered, complex and seductive with great intensity and balance between ripe red to dark fruit and spicy undertones. The wine is upfront in its every aspect but elegantly put together so that the palate remains fresh and incredibly drinkable. The tannins are persistent and savoury, the finish long and rounded.

It’s hard not to drink it, but this Shiraz will reward those patient enough to cellar it for the next 5 years.
