Vine Mind - Shiraz Malbec

Vine Mind - Shiraz Malbec

VINEMIND

A “bold” wine of proper balance, freshness, and sourced from next door to the legendary Wendouree. Adelina estate fruit in an even more crushable package. Dark fruit to be sure, cocoa, chocolate, cola, blackberry, baking spices, vanilla. All the “big” wine pedigree and talking points but with a relative lightness and lack of “sweetness” that make it a far more interesting wine. A lifted but brooding combo of deeply flavoured, and smash, pound, drinking. Trouble???
