Balgownie Estate’s shiraz from the Bendigo region is a well regarded wine. The 2016 vintage has aromas of pastille and spice. The palate is full bodied, very soft with little tannin and the cedar influence sits ajar from the fruit. Pleasant and ready to drink, the 2016 is a modest release. Rating: Good. Abv: NA.
