Pooles Rock Wines Firestick Shiraz 2009

Another wine from my "aeroplane series" of tasting notes.  It was therefore presented in a little plastic bottle and poured into a plastic glass in a cramped space, all the time jolting ever so slightly.  The wine has a plummy, oaky aroma with a slight acetic character.  On the palate, a bit tart, but drinkable.  Note to airline: can do better.  75 points (6/10 )
