Living Roots 2017 Pepperberry Shiraz (Adelaide Hills)

From the relatively cool climes of the Adelaide Hills, this wine shows little of the ripe richness seen in the valleys below. Instead the pendulum seems to have swung almost too far the other way, with elements of this wine feeling lean and a touch underripe. There are soft aromas of red fruit, licorice, cola and wild herb and spice characters, and a silkiness to the palate. Tannins feel a little astringent and bitter, but with time in the glass they settle in and the fruit comes to the fore. This likely will benefit from food. Christina Pickard
