Sorry to have to say it, but this wine was very bad. Dark, bland, bitter industrial taste with lasting finish of swamp water. Wish there were a minus rating scale.
Ordered this low priced wine because of it's Australian Wine Companion rating of 88. What a disappointment! It not only had a metallic taste, but lacked that fruity, bold suppleness you would expect from a Shiraz. The rating should have been an eight point eight (8.8) and not an 88.
