2013 Long Rail Gully Shiraz Cabernet

Long Rail Gully Shiraz Cabernet 2013I'm not entirely sure how this wine ended up on my wine rack, but I was pleased to find it, after a long day at work.  The Long Rail Gully vineyard resides in Murrumbateman, approximately 30 minutes north of Canberra and was first planted in 1998.

I was pleasantly suprised when I took s whiff of these to find a nicely balanced Cab/Shiraz blend with lots of black cherry and nice integration of oak.  Quite soft tannins and short lived on the palate.  Having tasted this over a couple of days I have the feeling this might not be a very long lived wine.  However, a pretty decent mid week quaffer and pleasant find for me.

 Price:     $20 (Unless you find it on your wine rack:)
Varietal: Shiraz Cabernet Sauvignon
