Ravensworth Estate Shiraz Viognier 2018
'All from the estate vineyards of Ravensworth in Canberra District. Has quickly become a benchmark red wine in the region, I feel.
Such a good wine here. Has that feel of pedigree – lots packed into a small space, fine chomp of tannins, raises on fresh acidity, regional flavours of blueberry, pepper and herbs. Fragrant as all get out too. It’s just that little bit skittish at present, feeling like it would benefit from time in decanter or cellar. Still, the fruit sings here and geewhiz it’s lovely.'
