Schild Estate Narrow Road Vineyard Shiraz Cabernet, Barossa Valley 2019, Australia
Deep dark ruby in colour the wine shows intense, but well controlled primary fruit aromas of blood plums and blueberries alongside fainter notes of white pepper spice. In the mouth, the attack is soft and filling dominated by the same lively primary fruit notes. A fresh acid line and an ever-present, but super fine tannin structure ensures some real control and a clear line of travel as the fruit rolls out in waves through the back of the palate.
