2017 Katnook Estate Shiraz Magnum (1500ml)
A cool, attenuated growing season has benefitted Coonawarra in '17. The fruit is plump, but not obtuse; the tannins long-grained; the acidity vibrant, but not hard. Rendered in French and American (55%) oak, there is plenty to like here: a whiff of lilac, anise, mint and a stream of blue fruit flavours with an accent of pepper.
