The 2017 Happs Welcome Home Shiraz is a wine that jumps out of the glass and greets you with warmth and generosity, you feel something akin to a welcome home. There is the sense of the familiar, an approachable and encompassing offer being made. Our Shiraz has become known for its special combination of elegance and largesse; a wine that is bold while also knowing when to show restraint.
The wine has good aromatic intensity and displays white pepper, spice, blueberry and strawberry jam with hints of toasty oak, forest floor, charcuterie and eucalypt. The palate is medium-full bodied with flavours of red fruits, green plum, tapenade, sour cherry, coffee and blackcurrant. There is also a distinct savouriness to the wine that makes one think of food. The tannins are fine, chalky and delicate and the flavours very persistent.
Partners in Wine WA Notes: Beautiful ripe, dark fruits which you will want to smell with every sip. It has that smell that you know it's going to taste good. Medium body, with silk soft tannins. Loads of fruit , but only a slight amount of pepper.
