Sloe Gins have followed the resurgence of their London Dry relatives with new releases appearing from around the globe; including Australia. If you're new to this quintessentially British recipe, you'll soon realise the two are related by suffix alone, with the majority of brands available producing a sometimes overly sweet, liqueur-like style. There are a few exceptions, and Two Accents is one, inspired by the Barossa’s big, bold rockstar reds - in this case, Cimicky Wines’ ultra-premium Shiraz. The nose captures the grape's brambly red fruit character, countered by drier, woody juniper notes and hints of apple (orchard fruits are also in the mix). Light and breezy, the palate is reminiscent of Rosso Vermouth, only with more punch, as background citrus adds zest to notes of dried cranberry and plum before a subtle ruby port character enters. Add water and the palate actually feels more expansive. All up, it's a fresh, pure, easy-going Summer style that tastes more like gin than a liqueur - which is how Sloe should be. Enjoy over ice or try it in a Sloe Gin Fizz. 41% Alc./Vol.
