      Sam Plunkett The Butterfly Effect Shiraz 2012

      Golly's Wine Drops - - 4 readers - This wine looked at first to have a cheery butterfly covered label, then I got to thinking the butterflies all look pinned down, like those creepy butterfly collection boxes wit the dead butterflies in, then when you look closely, the butterfly bodies are photos of humans, with the butterfly wings drawn on. It’s super creepy, like a dark and distressing Doctor Who episode.

The flavours of plums and cherries carried through with just a hint of pepper, again not the full on spice that some Shiraz bring to the glass, this wine leads far more with the fruit, which…

The larger green leaves have a softness and roundness to the their scent, they seem more complete, though milder and warmer. More nutmeg and cinnamon and less point. The dried leaves are sharper and more focused - with menthol, eucalyptus, cloves…

It's certainly distinct…

Wine writers are still debating the cause of the collapse but there was probably several…
