90pointsFranklin Tate 2017 Tate Shiraz (Margaret River)

#96 Enthusiast 100 2019
Return to List

This is a fine and affordable example of the spicy, elegant Shiraz produced in the moderate maritime climes of Margaret River. The nose is a mélange of plums, vanilla, pepper, baking spices and stalks, with a warm stone minerality. The palate is full bodied but restrained. Sinewy graphite tannins slink around tangy fruit and savory spicy nuances. Texturally, this feels like rolling a warm stone around in your mouth. The oak creeps in on the finish. Drink with a rare steak or juicy portobello mushroom burger. Christina Pickard
