Handpicked 2013 Collection Shiraz (Barossa Valley)

Six years in the bottle sees this full-bodied wine easing into calmer waters, the waves of plum fruit washing over the nose and tongue in dried rather than fresh form, and herbal, floral characters that feel like they belong less in a meadow and more in a potpourri dish. The vanillin oak is still present, too. There's still a firm grip of fine-grained tannins and some silky textured fruit weight but there's plenty of freshness still buoying things into brightness.
