Gartelmann Wilhem Hunter Valley Shiraz 2014

This is a pleasant medium bodied Hunter Valley shiraz from Gartelmann.  The 2014 Hunter Valley shiraz vintage is reported by James Halliday - someone who knows a thing or two about the Hunter Valley - as "what most rate as the best vintage in half a century" (you can read more here).  The wine in the glass has aromatics of pepper and peppercorn in a "syrah" style.  The palate is spicy, with fresh acidity and taut plum and tannin characters in a medium bodied style.  Rating: Good
