1. Pyren Vineyard Broken Quartz Shiraz 2011

Pyren VineyardSingaporean blogger “Wine Xin” picked out this wine as part of a tasting that highlighted the breadth of styles and grape varieties on offer from the Australian state of Victoria.

Recalling 2011 as “one of the wettest years in the Pyrenees and the wines were generally not well-considered”, he noted the problem many producers experienced in achieving ripe fruit.

By contrast, Wine Xin pointed to this wine’s “pronounced floral scent over peppery spices and, while the acid was a little sharp, tannins were properly ripe, well-textured and not harsh. A case of good winemaking despite bad conditions.”
