Willow Creek Vineyard 2014 Malakoff Shiraz

If all shirazes tasted as good as this, then I would drink a lot more shiraz,” said my wife after this trumped a bracket of several more expensive shirazes in a recent tasting. Made by Mornington Peninsula winemaker Geraldine McFaul from fruit grown in the cool Pyrenees region of Victoria, it is a wine of remarkable quality for the price; terrific fruit, quality oak and great structure with just a hint of minerally tannins. Beautifully balanced and structured. I could drink quite a lot of this. $32.
