The Wine Front June 2013 Mike Bennie

Scarlet Runner Shiraz 2011

 

Produced from estate grown, organic fruit from the loving hands of Joch Bosworth. He who nurtures vineyards and wine. Always wears nice work clothes. Never seen him out of them. Doesn’t mind a single malt either, not excessive, just likes a dram. Meanwhile, the packaging on these float my boat – love the antique seed packet feel. Go Team Bosworth. 

It’s a little light on for length and depth, but it’s a brightly flavoured, choc-berry orientated red wine that offers fresh fruit aromas, spice, earthiness and a bit of structure from dusty tannins. Good flavour and punch across the palate, feels like a Monday to Thursday pizza wine style, done well, with some concentration of flavour. Good drink.
