The Hedonist, Shiraz, McLaren Vale, South Australia 2020
(at London, 26 Sep 2022)
Drinking Window: 2022 - 2026
An inky Shiraz with a juicy, fleshy core of blackberries, ripe raspberries and plum, lined by black pepper and cardamom. The nose has a sweet aspect of cherry compote and Port-poached pears but the palate offsets this sugary suggestion with good acid and drive. Tannins are robust but soft. Long finish.
