Gartelmann Wines [NSW], "Jesse" Mudgee Shiraz 2015
After 4 years of development, the fruit primacy of this 2015 Gartelmann Jesse Shiraz has mellowed into a state of smooth grip.
Red fruit, pepper, wafts of spice and tobacco lurk beneath a patina of crisp acid and leathery tannins.
The chest-thumping declared 14.9% Alc helps deliver a sweetly smooth passage across the palate.
Some of the elements are still showing some angularity which will probably smooth off with some further cellaring
It's definitely a food wine well suited to hearty winter protein dishes
