Lindeman’s Limestone Ridge Shiraz Cabernet 2016

Evocative thing to put my nose into, is Limestone Ridge: it smells of the past. This year is 78% Shiraz.

Black fruits, almost to pastille, toast, pepper, cloves, the comforting smell of custard powder. Medium bodied, light tannin, succulent black fruits, raspberry coulis, aniseed and toasty malted oak, tannin is soft and powdery, acidity perhaps a little too pushy, but not overly intrusive, some perfume on the finish and milk chocolate tannin spreading out. Very traditional, as you’d expect, yet kinda nice.
