Mattie’s Perch Shiraz
Other words on the label: Southeastern Australian “Ripper”
The nose is very fruity—tart, unripened blackberries with a hint of creme anglaise on top.
This wine has a lot of bite. Basil and blackberries are the flavors that rise to the top and combined, they make me think of a stir-fry. It’s an intriguing flavor combination, which raises it just above an olive rating.
