Robert Stein [Mudgee NSW], Shiraz Nouveau 2017

This is Jacob Stein's first release of this Shiraz style.
The carbonic maceration & whole bunch fermented fruit components give a funky lift of interest.
This Shiraz Nouveau style channels both Southern Rhone & Beaujolais influences.
However, the solid 13.5% Alc and bright, generous primary fruit abundance anchors this wine squarely in the New World.
The clean French oak framework, whilst obvious is also supportive of the generous primary shiraz fruit characters.
Bound to be popular at cellar door, it will be interesting at its price point, to chart its niche in the current market, .
