Wirra Wirra RSW Shiraz

I am generally somewhat weary about McLaren Vale Shiraz. This is because the fruit is often very plummy, big and lacks complexity. This is not always the case, of course, but happens more often than not.

The 2002 Wirra Wirra RSW Shiraz is such an example. In addition, the taste is quite meaty, a sign of quite ripe fruit. There is still some freshness in the wine, but it also has quite a lot of oak and a somewhat flat finish.

Score: 89/0
