Brockenchack Zip Line Single Vineyard Eden Valley Shiraz 2020 $26

Ripe, spice-stacked, and showing seams of peppercorn and cocoa, this new vintage of one of my favourite new Eden Valley discoveries, has a shed-tonne of flavour and texture circling a core of bright boysenberry and blackcurrant. It’s ultra-fresh, frisky and fanging (technical term) with cocoa and smoke and layers of liquorice to finish. Beautiful drinking now, but if you’re disciplined enough, this shiraz will seriously reward another six or seven years in the cellar very nicely indeed.
