The Great Western range of wines provides an ideal introduction to the unique wine style of Great Western. These accessibly priced wines show detailed aromatic qualities set within a medium-bodied framework. The ‘continental’ climate, relatively unique in Australia, defined by cold nights and warm afternoons, means the fruit grown here develops flavours slowly through the day, building intense and varietal aromas and characters.
Lovely drink, soft and fleshy, just over medium weight this year with a little extra slosh and slurp. Dark berries, plummy sweetness, black jelly babies and clove. Slips over the palate well, formless-juicy-rich kind of feel, finishes with smudges of that clove and some earthy spice and faint bitterness. Easy to get into, fits the price bracket well, if not punches above its weight. Tasted: Sept 20; Alcohol: 14%; Price: $25; Closure: Screwcap; Drink: 2020-2030; Rated: 92 Points; Mike Bennie; The Wine Front
