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.
Indigo Vineyard Shiraz, Beechworth, VIC
A youthful, medium to full density colour which is pleasing to the eye. Red fruit and ginger notes from the 30% whole bunch fermentation. Dark chocolate flavours on the initial palate over very fine tannins. The French oak compliments the sweet fruit and the long soft finish makes for a very enjoyable Shiraz in the short term but also long term.
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.
