Watson Family Vineyards Shiraz 2018 Red Wine – Margaret River, Australia
This wine was sourced from two vineyard locations. The first is located to the south of Margaret River, which produces very elegant aromatic Shiraz fruit. The second vineyard was from a plot of 40 year old dry grown vines in the heart of the Wilyabrup Valley.
The nose of this wine shows an aromatic display of red and dark berry fruits. Ripe, plump, but medium bodied – this wine bursts with a combination of red berry fruits, white spice and toasty oak notes.
Generously constructed, rich and fine – this wine will be best enjoyed over the next 5 years.
About Watson Family Vineyards
After establishing Woodlands, the Watsons introduced the Watson Family Vineyards range which aims to produce elegant expressions of the Margaret River region, with wine styles that include the classics Shiraz, Cabernet Merlot and Sauvignon Blanc Semillon, to emerging varieties such as Nebbiolo. Each wine is carefully produced and blended to be in a beautiful refreshing style that is a pleasure to drink now.
This wine is very deep crimson colour. The nose shows an array of mulberry, blackcurrant and cassis, with hints of Ceylon cinnamon and French oak. The palate is soft and generous, with more red fruits mixing with spice and dark chocolate. Supple tannins linger.
