The 2019 Avenue to Gold Shiraz is bright and fresh, with a framework of spicy tannins that holds everything in check and balance. The fruit is vibrant and pure initially, but it does tend to finish up shorter than I expected. The tannins through the finish are the highlight for me—once the fruit has receded, they are chalky and a bit chewy. Drink it while the fruit is fresh.

Avenue to Gold is aged in a concrete tank.
Avenue to Gold possesses a very lifted aromatic and excellent ripe fruit that create a lasting mouth feel, it will age very well for 10 to 15 years.
This wine has a very complex finish which touches on both fruit and savoury details. Avenue to Gold?s fine tannins and acidity will bring pleasure in its youth and allow long cellaring.
