2017 Smokin' Gun Shiraz Cabernet Merlot - New!
Nick Bulleid MW's Tasting Notes

Background
From a Halliday 4.5 Star winery and made from select parcels grown in the premier Western Australian red wine regions of Margaret River (Cabernet) and the Great Southern (Shiraz).

This flavoursome wine combines grapes from Margaret River and Frankland, in the Great Southern of WA. The regions share the deep, gravelly soils typical of the south of the State.

The grapes were picked on 30th March and 5th April. The Cabernet and Merlot fermented together and separately from the Shiraz. The two wines were blended after maturation in one year-old and older French oak.

Colour
Medium-deep purple red

Nose
Rich red and dark berries. Hints of spice, but oak barely apparent.

Structure / Palate
This is a red with the really rich flavours yet approachable tannins that allow it to be enjoyed young. It will develop more complexity into 2022, but is so enjoyable now.

Try it with pasta, pizza or with meat dishes that combine plenty of fresh flavours.
