All of the Bethany releases have lower-than-typical (for Barossa) alcohol levels, including the 2014 Shiraz, which weighs in at a reasonable 13.9% alcohol. Perhaps as a result, it's heavily skewed toward red-fruit flavors, with hints of cranberries, red currants and raspberries. Medium-bodied, cool, streamlined and fresh, it's a solid effort that would probably look a lot better with food than in a lineup of bigger, riper, richer wines. (JC)
There’s a gentle side to this shiraz, a soft texture that holds its concentrated black cherry flavor. And there’s a gamey side, with black olive and bloody notes that play into its oak. Give it a year or two to integrate.
Savory notes linger on the edges of this red, with a toasty, chicory overtone to the cola and plum core. The tannins provide some traction on the finish. Drink now. (MW, Web Only-2018)
