2016 GARTEL­MANN DIEDRICH OR­ANGE SHI­RAZ

Halliday - Supplement - - Shiraz & Blends Red Hot & Rated -

RRP $50 / 2034

Don’t let the al­co­hol read­ing turn you off. This presents a pretty face to the world and is rich with red-berried fruit, uses oak to se­duc­tive ef­fect, and sings cleanly – and beau­ti­fully – through the fin­ish, tak­ing its al­co­hol in its stride. It’s not a par­tic­u­larly ‘dark’ wine, in its berries or colour, but it’s def­i­nitely a head turner. CM 15.2% alc. The wine is com­plex, big and bold. This cold-cli­mate vine­yard, just north of Or­ange, pro­duces in­tense flavours due to slower ripen­ing and it of­ten misses the late-au­tumn rains. This re­sults in a very com­plex, savoury and in­tense shi­raz. It makes you beg for more.
