Millon Estate The Royal Shiraz 2016
A new name to me that looks to be export-focused, with the wines made by Angus Wardlaw (Brothers at War). Based on the Millon Wines range I’ve seen so far they’re just a bit generic but early days (perhaps). This is Barossa Valley Shiraz that spends 18 months in French and American oak (40% new). Lavish milk chocolate medium+ toast oak ahoy! Coffeed, oak syrupy, warm finish. Just oak. Solid and hearty though and you know the sweet oak is going to win people over, even if it’s a bit warm and syrupy. Reminds me a bit of old Filsell. 17/20, 90/100. 14%, $45. Would I buy it? Not really. Seems a little expensive for that price too.
