2017 SILK­MAN RE­SERVE SHI­RAZ PINOT

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

RRP $50 / 2030

Silk­man was, so far as I know, the first to ex­plore this blend since the death of Mau­rice O’Shea. It raises a ques­tion with no real answer – why did it take so long to gain cur­rency afresh? It is the ul­ti­mate ‘now or later’ style, bril­liant in its flavour pro­file, and in the syn­ergy dis­cov­ered by O’Shea. This de­liv­ers his­tory and drink­a­bil­ity in a de­li­cious pack­age, be­ing a juicy and well-struc­tured blend of shi­raz and pinot from the Hunter. Pri­mary fruit notes of rasp­ber­ries and savoury spice carry from the nose to the palate, lay­ered over finely struc­tured and long tan­nins.
