Very flavourful perhaps a little on the syrupy side

A medium to full-bodied Shiraz from Australia. Spicy, fruity, well balanced. Air it for about an hour and you will like it better. Screw cap convenience. Goes well with smoke meat.

This medium to full bodied Shiraz has nicely aromatic, fruity aromas of bilberry and prune. It is quite hot (15% alcohol), with subtle to refined tannins(decant for 15 to 30 min) and a medium finish with a though of brettanomyces. It will be best in 2013 to 2017, but since it has a screw cap I would not age it that long. My impression: NICE, 87 pts. Tasted Oct/10.

Deep colour. Impressive complexity on the nose - blackberries, blueberries, shoe polish, coffee, dark chocolate. Doesn't follow through so well on the palate. Medium body, medium length. Overall really good value.
