Turners Crossing Shiraz
The colour of this wine is a deep, deep red, matched in intensity by its aroma of concentrated ripe black fruits, complex spice and savoury elements. The gentle hints of spicy apricot are thanks to the Viognier component. The enduring tannins frame the structure of the wine nicely and there’s a lingering mineral acidity that balances the wine right to the final note. This drop expresses the classic terroir for which Bendigo is so well loved, and shines as a result of the excellent vintage conditions. If you like your wines big and brash, then drink this now. Give it a few years in the bottle and you’ll see it soften and round out nicely.
