This is an incredible wine for the money. The famous Australian wine critic, James Halliday describes it as ‘risk-free’ wine and we can certainly see what he means. The Benchmark wines from Grant Burge are designed to over-deliver, they are fruit-driven wines with good balance, which can be enjoyed without years of cellaring.
This 2020 Shiraz has a heady blackberry, damson-scented nose leading to a palate overflowing with powerful fruit flavours (raspberry, blackcurrant, plum) and subtle notes of truffle and spices. A generous with well-balanced tannins and a long, satisfying finish.
