Samurai Shiraz 2017, Free Run Juice, South Australia (O, V)

ripe plum, spice, vanilla
According to the tasting note on the bottle, the Samurai Shiraz “tastes like ninjas”. Whoever knew ninjas tasted this good! This is natural Shiraz from Australian artisan producers Free Run Juice. Made with minimal intervention in the vineyard, and more Syrah in style than Shiraz, this medium body wine offers vibrant, juicy flavours of damson, plum, redcurrant and blackberry fruit, mushed up in a cup with a single black peppercorn. Not heavy, just deliciously drinking juice.
