LWF favorites recap: Sexy AF

This is my good side.

2017 Avon Brae 'Moculta'

Grape (s): Shiraz

Producer: Avon Brae, Eden Valley, South Australia

Where: online, local importer

This premium wine winner (literally, it has medals) arrived from the cool Barossa Ranges of Eden Valley to make a statement: look at me. I said Look (snap) At (snap) Me (snap). It's bold and BLOOD RED. Violets, chocolate, nutmeg, cinnamon, vanilla, plum jam and black cherry with an umami on the nose that says "drink me and I'll prove it to you". This wine is dry and smooth as silk with a strong acidity and finesse, finesse, finesse.
