"Frigoule" Shiraz 2019.
Lordy! What an extraordinary wine. Very dark purple/black colour, exotic density to the aromatics with ripe and deep cassis, pepper and spice, while the palate strikes an extreme balance between immense volume and surging/sappy acidity, plus lashings of vigorous gripping tannins to hammer home its serious credentials. A strapping wine of strength and attitude. Give it some oak and this would be a dead ringer for a show pony from Côte-Rôtie (just for a tenth of the price).
Drink now to 2027.
