Wine Review: This dark ruby colored Shiraz from the McLaren Vale open with a blueberry and mild cola bouquet. On the palate, this wine is full bodied with medium acidity. It is fresh and juicy. The flavor profile is a red plum and gentle oak blend with notes of mocha and mulberry. I also detected some subtle hints of red currant and strawberry licorice in the aftertaste. The finish is dry, and its mild tannins fade away nicely. This Shiraz would pair well with Jiko's grilled wild boar tenderloin. – Enjoy - Ken

Winemaker Notes: The 2019 Henry's Drive Shiraz has beautiful bouquet of violets and mulberries. The palate is bright, with flavors of blackberries, plum and dark chocolate. The wine flows easily across the palate with fine, firm tannins drawing out the finish. The color is dark garnet, with an elegant and intense bouquet of red fruit (raspberry, currant, pomegranate), menthol and various spices. The taste is rich and balanced with medium tannins that subtly linger through the long, satisfying finish. Serve at room temperature with braised lamb shanks or beef stroganoff.
