A wine score is the quickest, simplest way for a wine critic to communicate their opinion about the quality of a wine. Professional wine rating scores from a wide range of critics, for example Robert Parker's Wine Advocate and Wine Spectator, are usually adjusted for the 100-point scale. A mean of these scores is presented for specific vintages of a wine, as well as across all vintages.

This has aromas of currants, blackberries, spiced bread, orange peel, red plums and espresso. The palate delivers blueberries, laced with espresso and velvety tannins. The texture is very supple and smooth, building into a creamy and fleshy presence at the finish. Lots of fruit here. JS
A good marriage of food and wine ideally provides more pleasure than enjoying either one separately. As each of us have different sensitivities to various flavours and preferences, the definition of 'perfect pairing' varies, and this makes up the fun part of food and wine pairing.
The mint-inflected blackberries on the nose of the 2019 Neil Ashmead Grand Tourer Shiraz are strikingly pure and vibrant. This vintage is sourced entirely from the Greenock property, so perhaps that's a contributing factor. Aged two years in 40% new French oak, it's medium to full-bodied, concentrated and briary, with firm but silky tannins and plenty of length on the finish. RP
