Wirra Wirra RSW Shiraz 2011
14.5%, Screwcap, $70
Tasted blind in a lineup of McLaren Vale Shiraz and then checked again after a day in the fridge.
It took a while for this RSW to really show its best and even then it looked a bit angular. Less angular than the Vicar, but still hardly the most approachable of RSW vintages.
A wine that could do with a little more generosity, though is very well made and sufficiently well built (and powerful) that it deserves respect.
Score: 17/20, 90/100
Would I buy it? No.
