Winery Tasting Notes
Aroma: Super ripe blueberry, plum and blackberry Shiraz fruit with some dark chocolate and spicy notes as well. These are all complimented nicely by a swirl of charry French oak somewhere in the mix. Very attractive.
Palate: The palate is soft, spicy and powerful with flavours of blueberry, plum and charry oak overlaying a core of dark chocolate running through the mid palate. A little hit of fine, dry tannins on the finish adds length and structure to the plush fruit.
Summary: From a great vintage this is an excellent example of Clare Valley Shiraz. No problem in enjoying this wine as an infant, but as usual 7-10 years will see some development in the wine and amply repay those who care enough to stash some away in a cool, dark place.
