Dense, vibrant colour is a feature of this brooding beauty, along with very ripe, sweet fruit, reminiscent of plum, blackberry and pepper on the nose. The palate is generous, ripe and mouth filling exhibiting berry and cinnamon spice flavours, along with oak-derived mocha overtones and harmonious, soft yet defined tannins.
I've been a regular buyer of Willows Shirax over the past 12 years or so. Each vintage is consistently smooth, rich and fruity and the 2016 edition lives up to the standard, although I am laying most of my purchase down for a few years to make it even better. It outperforms many more expensive shirazes. Australian Wine Centre always gives friendly, reliable and prompt service. Deliveries are among the most efficient we receive in our slightly hard to find location
A great wine at the price, drinking very well now. Big and soft and full of fruit.
