2016 Wildcard Shiraz

$50.00

A Wildcard may be defined as “an unpredictable element in a situation” and the Thomas Allen Wildcard Shiraz was our unpredictable element in the cellar.

Quite often when putting a wine together, some barrels are discarded, even when of great quality, for the benefit of the overall blend.  These excess barrels were all emptied into a tank. When revisiting this tank some months later, this unpredictable blend had virtually put itself together to create this outstanding Shiraz. This 2016 Shiraz exhibits a spicy and peppery bramble like nose with a rich, ripe fruit palate, hints of white pepper and balanced beautifully by soft, yet supple tannins.
