Bit of a no-brainer here if you like medium weight, savoury-ish, red fruited, lightly spicy, cool climate shiraz.
About the Wine
If you're a fan of your cool climate Shiraz then this is a wine you really should have a look at.
Made by the lovely people at The Lane - the Block 5 comes from a close planted block within their stunning Adelaide Hills vineyard and is designed as the more versatile 'everyday-drinking' version of their Shiraz. Mike Bennie called it a, "Bit of a no-brainer here if you like medium weight, savoury-ish, red fruited, lightly spicy, cool climate shiraz." in his 92 point review.
This is an elegant, energetic and spicy Shiraz that drinks beautifully either now or over the next few years.
