2015 Circe Shiraz, Mornington Peninsula, Victoria
This is a tangy shiraz. It’s not plush but it’s not meant to be. It’s spicy and twiggy with orange and cranberry characters juicing up the palate. Red cherry, perhaps even strawberry. Pinot-esque. The parade is then topped with a swerve of tannin, assertive but at one with the wine. The words ‘garden herbage’ come to mind. Plenty going on. Needs a bit of time; will improve.
