Willem Kurt 2016 Beechworth Shiraz
“Beechworth shiraz. Fermented wild, 10% whole bunches, all-French oak, no fining or filtration. It’s a pretty, medium-weight shiraz but it doesn’t lack flavour; or character for that matter. Trademark (in Beechworth terms) cherry-plum fruit flavour with inklings of anise. Choc-orange notes, not into Jaffa territory but suggestive of it. Herb notes, sweet and floral. Maybe some mint. It just works. Tannin is massaged through the back half. It’s a lovely shiraz.” 93+pts , Campbell Mattinson, The Wine Front, Dec2018
