Backline "Block Raider" Shiraz 2018


From ex-LVMH supremo Dave Krenich, a great fella, rugby enthusiast, nice wine liker. He has some pals who like touching leather balls, namely, Matt Giteau, Adam Ashley Cooper and Drew Mitchell – they’re also owners in the Backline brand. I played rugby with a couple of Mortlock brothers at Gordon who turned out pretty good; hope that counts.

Lush, supple, soft and dark fruited red. Easy to like. Easy to guzzle. Ripe plum, struck flint, new leather and seaweed scents. Pleasing and regional. The palate has some gloss and shine, more of the bouquet’s fruit and greenery characters, a bit of regional saltiness to finish. Simple, done well. A convincing mid-week red to watch re-runs of mid-90s Shute Shield games.
