2018 The Opportunist Shiraz, Wild & Wilder, Langhorne Creek, South Australia
"I liked the 2018 Wild & Wilder The Opportunist Shiraz just a bit better than the Cabernet Sauvignon, although both are high-quality, easy-drinking wines from Langhorne Creek. A slightly meaty, savory note highlights cherry and raspberry fruit in this medium to full-bodied wine. Fresh and supple, it folds in a hint of mocha on the finish." Joe Czerwinski, The Wine Advocate Nov 2019. Drink 2019-2025.
An aromatic bouquet of ripe fruits, cherries and blackcurrants, with notes of freshly ground coffee, dark chocolate, peppermint, liquorice and subtle pepper. Thick and smooth with good balanced fruit weight. 14.5% ABV. 85% Shiraz/ 15% Grenache.
