89pointsFirst Creek 2017 Shiraz (Hunter Valley)

This is a the label of the Silkman family (chief winemaker Liz and CEO Shaun also have their own boutique label, Silkman), and it's a solid example of Hunter Valley Shiraz. Ripe fragrant aromas of strawberry preserves and some green herbal flower-stem notes mix with peppery Christmas-spice oak-derived characters. The palate is fresher than the fruity nose implies, reined in by nicely textured tannins and more spicy oak notes. That bright tangy red fruit continues right to the finish. Christina Pickard
