Winsor Dobbin Wine of the Week September 2017

'Puritan' Shiraz {no added preservative} 2017

An absolute ripper from Joch Bosworth and Louise Hemlsey-Smith in McLaren Vale – a “new wave” red that is all about pure fruit flavours. Made in the “Joven” or “young wine” style of Rioja, this is one of the first 2017 reds to cross my path. Made organically with no oak treatment and no added preservatives, it is designed for early enjoyment and that certainly works. Bright and fresh with dark berry and red fruit characters jostling for supremacy, this is a red that demands very little but delivers a whole lot. Soft and subversively slurpable.
