Willow Bridge Estate
Wine Type: Red Wine
Grapes: 100% Shiraz
Tasting Notes: Fresh blueberry and ripe black plums, spice and gentle biscuit oak dominate the nose. Textural and rich, sweet plums and dark berries with toasted French oak and long fine tannins. Dragonfly Shiraz is an expression of the juicy and generous varietal blackberry and blueberry fruits attained in the Ferguson Valley, complemented by fine tannins and supporting French oak.
James Suckling: “Inviting aromas of white pepper, paprika, sliced plums and crushed blackberries. Medium-bodied with the crunchy, peppery character from the nose continuing on the palate. Pleasantly fine, chewy tannins run the length of the wine. Drink now. Screw cap.”
International Wine Report: “The 2021 Dragonfly Shiraz begins with aromas of cherries and raspberries which are joined by dried spices and vanilla nuances. On the palate this is medium-bodied, velvety and balanced with a nice layer of underlying acidity providing a sense of freshness through the finish.”
