Hope Shiraz – from the wine virgin

The last wine of the evening was a shiraz by Hope. I really love shiraz or syrah wines at the moment. This particular shiraz was quite delicious. As expected, it had a jammy, blackberry smell and flavor. It was relatively smooth with a bit of pepper. The pepper was where this shiraz seemed to be a bit different.

I noticed that the pepper was spicy and sweet at the same time. I’ve described wines to be like this before in my blog, but with the Hope Shiraz, the contrast was more extreme in my opinion. It was almost as if there were two types of pepper in it – maybe three. It was like the spices changed as they went through the tasting of the palate. I really did enjoy this wine, but it just caught me off guard how the spices were so different. This also could have been a result of the southern fried chicken sushi! But nevertheless, it was a great wine on its own and even more interesting with food.
