The Dust Kicker GSMDKGSM

Vintage: 2010

Style: Full-bodied Red

Country: Australia

Region: Barossa Valley, SA

Overview: Most wine drinkers versed in Australian wine would probably associate the Barossa with big, jammy, blow-your-head off, teeth staining Shiraz but this gun-slinging, dust kicking blend melds subtlety and elegance with power. A union of the feminine and masculine if you will (Nudge-nudge, wink-wink, say no more-say no more). It has light perfume and great depth of flavour, quite reminiscent of the Côte du Rhône yet also unmistakably Australian.

Tasting Note: Brooding plums, pepper, musk and just a touch of strawberry on the nose. The palate has some nice brambly fruit with dense plum and cedar. Its juicy and velvety with nice elegant spice on the finish. 

Final Say: Get more than your boots dirty. $20 a bottle.

Score: 16.5 out of 20
