The 2015 Koomilya Estate Shiraz offers creaming soda, blackberry, cocoa powder, dried herbs, rust and red dust. The palate is medium bodied, elegant and a lesson in contradiction. Complex yet light, elegant yet tannic, sweet fruit yet umami.
It’s labelled as 14.5% on the bottle, but the tech sheet says 13.2%, so I will go with that. An error in your favour, as you might read while playing Monopoly, unless you perceive additional alcohol at no extra cost to be beneficial.
Blackberry, ripe raspberry, cocoa, iron and earth, aniseed and cedar. It’s dense and savoury, but with ample fruit sweetness, tannin tightly packed yet smooth, dark chocolate and black olive rolled in dried herbs. Length is sure. Such distinctive wines from Koomilya. 95 Points, April 2020. Review from Gary Walsh of the Winefront.
The average price per bottle is only available in a case of 6.
