Tuffer's Tipple Margaret River Shiraz 2019 review - WineUncorked: Wine Reviews and Tips


One of six wines from former English cricketer Phil Tufnell, or Tuffers as he is also known, which consists of three whites and three reds.

The best of the six wines in the range, this Australian Shiraz is complex with fruits, flowers and spice. But it is expensive – even for a branded wine backed by a famous personality. Plums and cherries on the aroma have the added sweetness of Szechuan pepper – there’s even some violets too. The taste is easy to get into with up front milk chocolate then redcurrant sharpness. A nice example from the cool climate region of Margaret River in Western Australia.
