Fallen Giants from Western Victoria’s Grampians has won the Jimmy Watson Trophy at the Royal Melbourne Wine Awards. The 2019 Fallen Giants Shiraz ($35) collected the award for the Best Young Red, which is widely regarded as one of Australian wine’s top honours. The same wine also won Best Victorian Shiraz and the Trevor Mast Trophy for Best Shiraz.
A deep, bright red/purple colour leads into a spicy, meaty cool-grown shiraz aroma with a trace of graphite, the fruit doing all of the talking. Lovely aromatics, while the body is just medium-weight, with moderately high intensity, the tannins fine-grained and easy on the tongue. It’s already drinking very well. (Screwcap)
