Lethbridge Great Western Shiraz 2013
The Wine Front – Wild yeast, low sulphur, no new oak. An unfettered view of shiraz in a Great Western landscape. Great Western shiraz rarely smacks you between the eyes. Indeed back in the day I’d always read reviews of Seppelt Great Western Shiraz, go out and buy said wine, and wonder why wine writers always raved over them. It’s a style that grows on you over time. This wine from Lethbridge tastes of leather and plum, mint and black cherry, with a subtle-but-not-overt infusion of dry spice, not quite into pepper but almost there. It has a rude freshness to it in spite of its leathery undercurrents. The drinkability factor here is high to say the least. Few things are as magnetic as purity.
In a mixed or straight case: $35.14
