David Franz 2017 H.P. Hydraulic Press Shiraz (Barossa)

This vintage of David Franz's Shiraz is unfortunately quite a different beast from the previous vintage. It yields an odd nose of stewed cherry fruit combined with green stalky and minty characters. The palate feels equally cooked, the tannins overshadowed by stewy fruit and an overall lack of cohesiveness. Props, as always, for walking to a different beat. In this case, though, the beat was missed. Christina Pickard
