Toolangi’s 2019 Shiraz is a finely drawn, cool climate Shiraz with smoky charcuterie aromas layered with dried herbs and black fruits, a hint of restrained oak, pepper and spice. The palate is long and elegant, with a pristine core of dark berries and plums, tightly knit with gentle oak and supported by fine, dusty tannins. It finishes savoury with refreshing acidity. Great value.
“Value to be had here. It’s riddled with pepper-spice, it’s ripe, it’s savoury in large part but there’s more than enough fruit too. It’s also well balanced. If pepper-laden shiraz is to your liking then you’d be hard-pressed to find such a good example at such an easy-to-reach price. Recommended. Highly.” 93 points, Campbell Mattinson
