The 2018 Vasse Felix Shiraz has a bright deep maroon color. A complex perfume of black cherry and boysenberry, underpinned with an endearing pastrami note. This shiraz wine has a beautiful notes of rose petal potpourri and Chinese black tea open to hints of English cheddar and teak wax. A luscious entrance with bright, tangy raspberry, black cherries and notes of liquorice and vanilla. The stems bring a lovely mineral sensation with a velvety tannin polish, leaving the finish fresh and dry.
95 Points – Jane Faulkner Wine Companion
“Cabernet sauvignon might be the regional red darling, but sometimes shiraz stands proudly. Still in a restrained style with excellent fruit at its heart, a dusting of woodsy spices, black pepper with an iodine/ferrous note. Sandpaper tannins and poppy acidity go hand-in-hand.”

“This has a spicy and gently flinty nose with red-plum and berry aromas, leading to an attractively succulent palate that delivers bright red-fruit flavors, within bright, juicy tannins. Drink or hold. Screw cap.”
