Lake Breeze Bullant Shiraz 2013

lakebreezebullant

Langhorne Creek make some pretty smart juicy reds and this one from the Follett family’s Lakes Breeze winery is a good drink.  It is like a big, juicy hug of a wine. Peppery black cherry and plums, with vanilla cinnamon caramel offer up a sweet spicy combo that joins a minty refresher as it hits midpalate.

Full bodied with smooth, generous curves and soft tannins. Simply a well judged wine that aims to please whether it be the hump of the week or an easy weekender. A lot of fun for the price.
