David Franz Mal's Blend Non Vintage Shiraz Cabernet

Cracka Review

Colour: Vibrant rich red, running the gamut down from the youthful wines contributing bright purple intensity layered over increasingly deep fleshy red notes

Nose: The nose is immediately filled and caressed with the heady aromas of Glazed Cherries nestled in a potpourri of dried rose petals, which opens to reveal an undercurrent of raspberry over vanilla plum, violets and a base of dark molasses bread.

Palate: The wine marches assertively onto the tongue without apology or so much as a by your leave, sets up camp and doesn't leave. With a flourish and a grin a silky satin beadsheet is laid down on your tongue. As it makes itself at home out of the backpack comes an incredible array of perfectly ripe (with just a hint of tartness) summer berry fruits. These make way for the more volatile and assertive red stone fruits of cherry and plum before the spearmint and spice over subtle vanilla seed and dark bready yeast characters kick in. The wine lingers for a ridiculous amount of time with the firm but delightfully fine grained tannins bringing up a stylish rear guard action. Yum bloody yum!!!
