Bruce Jack Shiraz 2019

Western Cape, South AfricaThis initially has quite a reductive note, which needs a vigorous decant to blow off. With some patience, meaty and spicy aromas emerge alongside plummy black fruits. But everything still comes across a bit muddled. Fortunately, the tannins are soft and approachable, and there is a good degree of freshness. It doesn’t typify South African syrah/shiraz (at least to this palate), but it will likely appeal to fans of cool(er) climate Australian shiraz, especially at this modest price point. The barbecue is calling.Tasted: 10 June 2020Tasted by: Geoffrey MossPrices: BC 15.91 BCLS NFL 16.04 NLLC Producer: Bruce Jack WinesDistributors: Icon Fine Wine and Spirits
