Cape Barren Native Goose Shiraz 2010 (McLaren Vale, SA)
14.5%, Screwcap, $25
A charming McLaren Vale Shiraz this. Unpretentiously good.
Plush and luscious. Has that very open, flattering Milky Bars oak nose and generous plum and boysenberry fruit. You half expect this to be sweeter than what it is, those tannins reminding how serious the package is. Clever, generous and simple. Utterly modern but appealing too. Slurpable but with a serious edge, a pleasurable mid-palate driven Vale red
Score: 17.7/20 92/100
Would I buy it? Maybe a little sweet and juicy for me to buy, but I’d drink it nonetheless.
