Auld William Patrick Shiraz

The 2016 Auld William Patrick Shiraz is the flagship wine of Auld Family Wines, which I reviewed a few posts below. It shows typical Barossa Shiraz flavours of concentrated bramble, blood plum, and licorice. The new oak is not yet integrating too well. This is a full-bodied wine with savoury notes playing a role as well. The mouthfeel lacks some roundness, but this is a more elegant wine than found in the Wilberforce and Strawbridge ranges. The wine is pleasant to drink now, but will improve with age, as its components integrate some more.

Score: 91/0
