First Drop 2015 The Cream Shiraz (Barossa Valley)

This ripe densely structured wine oozes plump plums and red currants along with licorice, mocha and slightly synthetic-feeling oak spice. The alcohol on the palate feels a touch hot, wound by grainy textured tannins. The fruit is plush and silky and the acidity gives it a tangy lift. But overall this wine feels two-dimensional—an expression of ripe primary fruit and oak. Christina Pickard
