The 2016 Water Wheel Shiraz

Is a quintessential Victorian Shiraz, offering a rich and full-bodied experience. Primary flavors of currants and blackberry jam dominate the palate, providing a lush fruitiness. As the wine develops, a finish of licorice and black pepper emerges, adding a delightful spice. The tannins are grainy initially but mellow out after an hour, leaving a mild, lingering finish. This Shiraz is a fine example of its region, perfect for those who enjoy a robust and flavorful red wine.
