Powell & Son 2017 Shiraz (Barossa Valley)

This is a rich, old school Barossa Shiraz. Plump fruit in the form of currents and blueberries are backed by notes of olive brine, earthy spice, charred veg and a furniture polish-and-vanilla-oak character. The palate is dense but not overtly syrupy or muscular. There's quite a bit of high gloss oak showing here but plenty of fruit and spice, too. This is well-groomed but wouldn't it be nice if a few freckles showed through all the makeup? Christina Pickard
