Port Phillip Estate Shiraz 2005

Mornington Peninsula, Australia
3309 days ago

Meng scored this wine: 93/100

The fruit for this wine comes from the estate vineyard situated at Red Hill. These Shiraz plantings were established in 1994. The wine is grown and made to enhance the varietal, regional and site characteristics. Only traditional methods, such as natural ferments, are employed with maturation in French oak. The wine is light and smooth with a medium length.

This shiraz is a seamless wine that is rich, yet soft and sumptuous. Vibrant berry fruits with sweet spice and balanced oak make this an extremely balanced wine with great length. Will drink all year round.

Maverick Greenock Rise Shiraz 2007

Barossa Valley, Australia

Meng scored this wine: 98/100

Old vine shiraz (ca 1950) from two small blocks at Maverick's Greenock Rise vineyard produces grapes of great balance and intensity of flavour. Blackberry, cherry and exotic spice characters are supported by a voluptuous palate and finely-textured, velvety tannins that are rich and almost chocolatey in deepness and length. Perfect with beef, lamb, game and strong cheese.
