First Creek 2018 Shiraz (Hunter Valley)

A strong vintage of this wine, this represents the medium-bodied style of Shiraz for which Australia's oldest wine region is known. Lucid and appealing once it gets some air, it offers fistfuls of plump red currant and raspberry fruit, backed by ground pepper, earthy spice and subtle floral nuances. Fresh and silky, it has a lovely juxtaposition of juicy red fruit and spicy, smudgy tannins. It should prove a versatile food wine for drinking over the next several years. Christina Pickard
