Intensely graceful and youthfully elegant, Brooks Road is a new resurgence of Australian Shiraz that captures the most acute aspects of the fruit. The sharp summery breeze of the high country offsets the dark, brooding berries and the bright earthiness of the red beet clusters. It’s all there in the glass to be had - scents of dark currants and red berries mingle with freshly excavated roots and culminate in the taste of dry dusty air on the pasture that lingeringly departs with the faintest memory of cedary oak. It’s a spicy, lively thing that beckons you to return.
Supple and refined, Brooks Road reflects its cooler source in its elegance and finesse. It's immediately harmonious and smooth, despite its wide scope of aromas and flavors, which range from Morello cherries, through faint bergamot, to creamy orange chocolate with soft velvet tannins. While it's assured to offer profound delight as it mellows and matures, it's a silky treat already.
