2008 enjoyed two releases through Vintages at the LCBO. (2nd release was April 26th, 2014).

As the agent.....of all of our products in our portfolio.....it had the fastest release day sell through with over 20% being purchased in a single day.

There are lots of ways to judge wines. We see the consumer reaction when they taste it, we see the #'s on the sales.....and personally I could drink bottles of this style of shiraz made by Galli Estate (their Australian name that they can't use in North America).

Watch for their Heathcote Block II Shiraz to release in 2015 through VINTAGES.

High intensity aromas of black pepper, oak and hints of dried fruits. Medium-bodied with smooth, integrated tannins featuring flavours of sweet ripe fruits. Finish is long and smooth with hints of blueberry. Tasted Feb/2014.

The 2008 Camelback Shiraz, aged in French Oak for 14 months, has intense aromas of cranberry, pomegranate, raspberry, lees and oak. It is a medium bodied, extra-dry, integrated wine; acidic with refined tannins and a medium, somewhat reduced finish. My impression: NOTHING SPECIAL, 87 pts – there is a possibility that this was not a good bottle. Tasted at Australia Today 2014 Trade show http://grapeselections.com/australian-wine/ in Feb/14.
