Shiraz Discovery Pack
2 bottles of:
Shiraz, Hunter Valley, NSW
Lifted fresh red fruit and spice characters. The colour still a vibrant deep red. Lovely savoury, red cherry flavours and fine grained tannin from the perfectly ripe fruit and French oak. The oak takes a background seat due to the use of puncheons and mostly older oak. This is a fine Hunter Valley Shiraz.
1 bottle each of:
Shiraz, McLaren Vale, SA & Hunter Valley, NSW
Medium bodied with some purple edges evident. Quite floral/rose petal aromas. The palate has lovely weight and fruit spice flavours. The blend could almost be reversed such is the savoury nature of the Hunter Shiraz. Low oak impact and ripe tannins for a great finish.
Four Winds Vineyard Shiraz, Canberra District, ACT
Striking deep crimson appearance with bright red hues. Floral fragrant nose of red and black berries, five spice and white pepper. The palate is powerful and seamless with fruit weight to the fore and fine oak tannin in the background. A Murrumbateman Shiraz that epitomises the cool climate style that Australian wine drinkers are devouring rapidly.
Wade Block 2 Vineyard Shiraz, McLaren Vale, SA
Vibrant, youthful colour; medium density and lovely purple tints. Being a cooler year the aromas are more on the spice cherry side than ripe opulent. The alcohol is still 14%. Medium weight palate and again spice and savoury edges. The tell-tale McLaren Vale jube fruit is there along with background oak.
Tallawanta Vineyard Shiraz, Hunter Valley, NSW
A true Hunter Valley Shiraz on all accounts, lifted cool year aromas of red ginger and spice with noticeable char oak and medium density colour. At 13% alcohol, the wine has a medium-bodied palate with plenty of earthy, bramble notes. Red cherry fruit characters, fruit tannin and the oak at this early stage is noticeable but not obtrusive. A wine that is drinking well now but will age gracefully.
