2020 Koonowla Shiraz

2020 Koonowla
Shiraz

Shiraz is the big player in the Clare Valley – the most planted grape variety, favoured for its richness and savoured for its vitality. Acclaimed as one of the region’s great red wines, it can offer a spectrum of styles from bold and powerful, through lively and expressive, to deep and meaningful. One thing’s for certain – it’s never short of local personality.

Reflecting an estate and regional bouquet of crushed dark plums and Middle Eastern like spices. Medium to full bodied styling imparts an expressive, contemporary character with a lingering finish.

Palate

A Clare Valley snapshot of dark fruits with savoury interplays suggesting roasted root vegetables, white pepper and a lovely background sense of French oak (20% new) that offers structural and subtle flavour support. Medium to full bodied styling imparts an expressive, contemporary character with a lingering finish.
