Lowe Wines Mudgee Blue Shiraz Cabernet 2011

This is an attractive effort from Lowe Wines, with fruit sourced from the northerly Mudgee region in New South Wales at an altitude of around 500 metres.  But then I always tend to like shiraz cabernet blends.  Purple in the glass, with a medium to deep intensity of expression, it has aromatics of wood spice, pepper, plums and plenty of anise.  On the palate, the same characters follow through, with a medium length finish and some attractive acidity cuts through.  Reminding of a Coonawarra shiraz, this well made blend of shiraz (80%) and cabernet sauvignon (20%) from Lowe Wines is attractive drinking now.  Good
