Partisan White Label McLaren Vale Shiraz 2012
A value drinking label, this already has some wine show bling and decent scores to its name.
Yet for mine this tastes like a $15 wine, no more. There’s a real ‘made’ character to this, as if it has been made with all the tricks (a dash of concentrate and added acid), the fruit plummy and confected, the palate short and the oak average quality.
You could do better than this for the dollars.
