Review: Marius – Simpatico Shiraz (2013)
Great Value

Simpatico Shiraz from Marius Wines

The Wine Review:

The wine has a dark red colour and a clean clarity. It has a lovely touch of vanilla oak on the nose.

The aroma also gives off a smell that’s like fresh made carpentry with new lacquer finish with a mix of inky, gummy, dense fruits.

Taste wise, it is very smooth and silky with well integrated tannins present from mid to end. Although young, it feels very polished as a big plummy wine. It also has rich chocolate flavours with a bit of honey and eucalyptus.

For the price it’s a bit of a bargain and does well against other big name McLaren Vale Shiraz’s. It’s a wine that does bold simplicity very well and has you reaching for more.
