First Drop 2015 Fat of the Land Seppeltsfield Vineyard Shiraz (Barossa Valley)

The second in this producer's top-tier single-vineyard Shiraz line, this wine is sourced from red clay and limestone soils. It shows ripe extracted fruit and sweet oak. It's clearly meant for the cellar, but for the moment it's dense and sullen. The plush dark-cherry fruit and savory herbs feel thick and syrupy on the palate, ending a little sour and bitter. They're propped up by a soft line of tannins. Drink 2021–2029. Christina Pickard
