This is a superb example of a Shiraz. It's big in every way. Huge nose full of fruit & great mid-palate. I didn't find the finish as long as I would have hoped at this price, but then again, maybe my sensors were numbed by the high alcohol (masked nicely by the fruit).
At four years old this attractive Shiraz is already showing intriguing maturing nose with aromas of blackberry, plum, currants, white pepper, mint, violet and sandalwood. On the mouthfeel, flavours of blackberry preserve and savoury spices, balanced acidity and fine grained tannins. This wines finish is very smooth with soft seductive fruit flavours and exotic spices lingering. Even with the considerable alcohol, Sophie’s Garden 2008 still managed to be well balanced, thanks to the massive amounts of ripe fruit. An interesting Shiraz that was very enjoyable.
