The cork was brittle but no leakage had occurred. The wine is fantastic. Big fruit and wonderful legs. However, IT IS TOO YOUNG ! Leave it until 2018 or later. I have two more bottles and will wait to try them.
As good as Barossa shiraz gets, from a vintage that just gets better and better with time. Long and complex, blueberries, anise, floral notes, tar, earth and wonderful mouth-feel. Ripe tannins are melting away, leaving this wine close to it's peak. This is one of the few Aussie shiraz at this price point that absolutely improves with age. Highly recommended.
