BOWEN ESTATE SHIRAZ 2016
Totally opaque, black crimson colour with deep, crimson red hue. Superb, lifted nose of blackberry, liquorice and spice followed by some confectionary and vanilla end notes. There’s certainly nothing shy about this Coonawarra Shiraz. Once again Bowen Estate’s Shiraz delivers a level of concentration and richness that the vast majority of Coonawarra producers seem unable to obtain. Rich and bold, the palate delivers a mouthfilling flavour experience of ripe blackberry, liquorice and blackpepper followed by some confectionary and a trace of vanilla with the blackpepper component persisting onto the back palate. Fine grained tannins with very long blackberry, liquorice and blackpepper aftertaste.
