FIVE STARS 94/100 | Sam Kim "Delightfully fruited and immediately appealing"
If ever there was a Barossa Shiraz that defined the term 'Over Achiever' this has to be it. The supercool squat bottles give you a clear signal that there is something special going on here and this opulent Aussie red ticks every other box. It's complex and classy enough to enhance a fine dining table - and gluggable enough to enjoy whenever the mood takes you. It really is the ducks nuts. If robust Aussie reds make you a happy camper, you'll never find a safer bet.
The winery writes "The Barossa Valley makes up the majority of the fruit source with typical plum, red licorice, chocolate and mocha characters whilst the addition of the spicier, elegant fruit of the cooler Eden Valley has added lift, interest and freshness. This is a contemporary Barossa Shiraz having spent maturation time in older oak adding subtle vanilla and earthy nuance. There’s softness on the finish while maintaining freshness and vibrancy. Pair with a classic roast beef and horseradish."
Sam Kim writes "Delightfully fruited and immediately appealing, the bouquet shows black/blueberry, subtle spice, cocoa and toasted nut characters. It's wonderfully weighted and flavoursome on the palate, delivering fleshy mouthfeel and silky tannins, leading to a lengthy soothing finish."
Classic Barossa Valley Shiraz
Excellent wine. Have just brought my 4th case.
