You wouldn't say many shiraz would go well with the seaside, favouring fresh young whites, rose, sparkling wines and the like, but this intrepid wine from an adventurous, avant garde winemaker, marries freshness, vitality, crispness, crunhcy texture, with the core fruit and spice characters expected of the variety. It goes through that fruit-popping thing called carbonic maceration, and around 75% whole bunch included in the ferment gives a herbal lift to perfume, and some herby character to flavours. It's delicious, straight up, so easy to drink, gliding silky texture, perky finish. Righteous. From an unusual blend of Pyrenees (Victoria) and McLaren Vale (South Australia) too - enjoy the unexpected.
