Purveyors of fine grape juice
2013 Ruggabellus Archaeus barossa valley, australia
$50

Always a parcel of Shiraz from Eden Valley, Keyneton, from Gibson’s father’s vineyard.
Shows a ripe punch of red currant, red berry, red flesh plum fruit perfume with red rose petal floral notes. A lick of dried herbs, tar and black olives too. Complex perfume. Inviting. Fleshiness in texture, briary and red-fruited, some more tar and floral character, chewy and puckering with talc-stone tannins. Firm finish, but upfront some more generosity. Feels pretty untamed as yet, but still compelling to drink. Such unchartered waters. Mike Bennie - The Wine Front
