Oh James Suckling. How mediocre does a wine have to be to score less than 93 points? Crikey.
This perfectly palatable and in many ways lovely red is on the simple side; an authentic 93 point Shiraz is the Torbreck, reviewed here. This subtle contender is just that, a contender. And not even a Brando On the Waterfront wannabe.
Yeast, light maraschino and tart berry, a crisp and inelegant finish, not long on the palate. It’s certainly no dud but it’s bantam weight at best. But, hey, like Lizzo says, let’s be body positive.
Price: All in at Firefly $35.
Market Liquidity: You will drink it, you will probably like it, and you will forget it. Pffft.
