2016 Strait Jacket Shiraz
The 2015 Strait Jacket Shiraz has a dense blood red appearance with a dark black heart indicating the concentration of the Shiraz fruit from the vintage.
The nose is full of dark cherry fruits with the spicy, peppery hints. There are aromatic tones of ripe berries and an almost chocolaty character. The oak is restrained and cedar like in quality. The palate is rich and concentrated without being heavy and tannic allowing the wine to be enjoyed in its youth without gripping astringency.
There is great depth of ripe cherry flavour with more complex peppery characters. The wine displays the sweet fleshy fruity middle palate that makes good cool climate Australian Shiraz so attractive. Can be enjoyed now or over the next few years with food, family and friends.
