Stockman's Ridge Rider Shiraz 2014


This wine is from Orange producer Stockman's Ridge.  It didn't particularly grab me, the potential confirmation bias of its various wine show awards eschewed.  Pepper, plums and green wet peppercorn aromatics.  The palate is peppery, medium bodied but an elevated vein of acidity affects its balance.
