Wild Duck Creek Estate Springflat Shiraz 2013


Speaking of styles that will have both friends and foes, this wine from Wild Duck Creek in Heathcote weighs in at 15.6%abv.  I was sceptical too.  But read on if you are open minded, because the wine holds the alcohol in balance and is, I think, a very good example of a regional style.  A typically robust expression of Heathcote shiraz, the 2013 vintage has aromatics of plus and prunes.  The palate has saturated long length and a textured full body.  Some smart winemaking here.  (Alc: 15.6%, Region: Heathcote, Rating: Good to Very Good, Would I buy it based on this tasting? Yes, but drink in moderation, Drink: now to 2027, Tasted: June, 2017)
