FIVE STARS 93/100 | Sam Kim, Wine Orbit
98 POINTS | Winestate Magazine
Knappstein have a long history of producing premium Clare Valley wine and own some of the best wine growing territory in the region. Their 2019 shiraz is a big, dark, plush rendition with dark berry notes and hints of spice. An excellent choice if you're looking for quality Aussie Shiraz.
Sam Kim writes "Upfront and immediately appealing, the wine shows Black Doris plum, floral, almond and olive characters with a light touch of pepper spice. It's juicy and beautifully rounded on the palate offering generous mouthfeel and a lengthy silky finish."
The winery writes "The 2019 Shiraz is full of brambles and blue/black fruits with a spicy lift. Layers of brooding dark fruits, spice and savoury characters are framed in fine oak. The sinewy tannin profile pulls the wine through to a long and moreish finish."
