2017 Malabar Reserve Shiraz
$70.00
- +

A winemaker selection of either the western or eastern blocks across the estate’s holdings that is is increasingly and inevitably, I am told, from the eastern side.

With the shading and attenuated ripening pattern, justifiably so. The result compacts a density of dark to mulberry fruit scents, with a leafy freshness embedded across a sinewy, firm tannic fiber.

Far more structured and authoritative than the other blocks due to tighter packed, compact grapes. This higher quotient of skin to liquid ratio imparts a full-bodied textural intrigue. Almost Italianate in its dry, structural pose. Savoury and inimitably Hunter.

Notes: This early endeavour sees circa 12% of whole-bunch in the mix to confer structural authority and herbal complexity to a kaleidoscope of root spice, mulch, bing cherry notes.
