2016 Shiraz 'Blewitt Springs'Brini
Sebastiano Brini arrived in McLaren Vale from Italy in 1950 with a suitcase, five pounds and a passion for growing grapes. He spoke no English. In the year 2000 Sebastiano's sons, John and Marcello, established Brini Estate Wines to produce small batches of premium quality wines from the vineyard they grew up on.
The Brini Blewitt Springs Shiraz shows a bright vibrant red colour with purple hues. Dense mixed berries on the nose complement the inviting spicy notes.
Brooding wild raspberries envelope the palate leading to a rich velvety long and well balanced finish.
The subtle oak influence integrates well with the soft tannins.
Halliday gave this 94 and it’s well deserved! Could cellar for a couple of years at most but every much a now drinker!
