2013 Margan Estate Shiraz

Margan ShirazAn entry level Shiraz sourced from winemaker Andrew Margan's Hunter valley vineyards.

Some reductive sulfur notes on first opening, which fell away on the second day of tasting. Some dark berry fruit, with spice and earthy notes. Decently structured tannins which stuck around on the palate for a decent amount of time. Not a bad Shiraz, will likely benefit from a bit more age.

Price:      $20

2013 Margan Verdhelo

Winemaker Andrew Margan spent over two decades working at Tyrells before going it his own in the Hunter Valley. Alongside his wife Lisa they now have over 100ha of vines planted.

Opens with a tropical fruit nose featuring pineapple alongside aromas of peach and orange peel. A fairly soft broad palate with medium length and a nice crisp finish. An easy drinking wine well suited for summer days.
