Big but not pretty.
Kirrihill Tullymore Vineyard Shiraz 2009 (Clare Valley, SA)
14.5%, Screwcap, $16.95
Anyway this wine falls into the latter camp – it’s an inky purple beast that is streaked with overripeness, the nose like a minty blackberry reduction sauce, complete with fruit concentrate sweetness and topped off with older oak. The palate follows with sticky, sweet and sour, blackberry fruit richness with cedary oak and raw tannins. A rough and ready, old school red made with extraction and concentration but little in the way of delicacy. 14.8/82
