Tart spicy finish that just keeps giving
|Cherie Cole rated this wine as 91/100 with the following review:|
This Shiraz from South Australia exudes layers of black plum, cherry preserves, leather and vanilla. Full-bodied with velvety tannins and a long finish. Tasted January 15, 2017.
|Jane Staples - Certified Sommelier rated this wine as 91/100 with the following review:|
From Mclaren Vale in South Australia, an aromatic Shiraz made from hand-picked grapes(ie, no twigs or mice in the vino!). Fragrant ripe dark cherries, plums, blackberries, with spice too, on the palate. Velvety mouthfeel and elegant finish. This Shiraz has won numerous awards and it's easy to see why.
Tasted Oct. 2016
|Gwen Barton rated this wine as 90/100 with the following review:|
Big, juicy Aussie Shiraz. Generous nose of jammy dark red fruit, smoke and tobacco. Robust flavours of plum, dark cherry, blackberry with some cinnamon and other sweet spices. Pair with anything on the Barbie- of course!
|Jennifer Havers - WSET Level 3 rated this wine as 88/100 with the following review:|
Warm, spicy notes on the nose, along with red berry, blackberry and a hint of smoke. Smooth, with nice body, and rounded, yet balanced fruit. Medium+ finish. Try this with steak and enjoy.
|Sharon Prionas rated this wine as 86/100 with the following review:|
Dark intense colour with aromas of red fruit. Medium to full-bodied on the palette with toasty oak and a strong tannin pull. Decant for several hours before consuming. Better yet, celler for a bit longer. I would pair with grilled steak and veg that would stand up to this wine. Suggest a bitter green such as asparagus or spinach salad.
|The Shiraz grapes are sourced form a single vineyard in the foothills of the Australia's McLaren Vale. Winemakers allow dandelions to grow among the vines here as they suppress other weeds and provide nutritious mulch. Vines are planted in ironstone pebble laden with clay loam, over ancient Kurrajong Formation geology of silica cemented conglomerate ideally suited to grow Shiraz. - Community Wine Reviews|
