Expressive detail and drinks wonderfully with a lovely deep dark hue and a fresh vibrant intensity. Mallaluka’s 2019 Shiraz is on the lighter side, especially at first. It seems juicy with a tart edge, but as it gets air it fills out to be a medium bodied red that turns satiny and more polished with a riper tone. Raspberry and plum go with the initial cranberry and tart cherry along with light spices, violets, currant and fennel. It is a fresh and pure Shiraz that has a surprisingly long aftertaste.
