A great example of a balanced big fruit driven Aussie shiraz. Great! A deep dense purple colour with big round mouth feel. Plum and a hint of mint on the nose. Big cherry with just enough smooth vanilla oak to balance it out. If there is any criticism it is the mid palate is a bit light and empty. Long-medium finish with a citrus edge.
Dark purple colour. Plenty of cherry and blackberry on the nose. Mouth is full of licorice, chocolate and berries. Finishes really long. soft tannins already, but has a good structure for many more years to come.
After trying 2008 that was extremely smooth, I had to buy few bottles of 2010 that should be equally good if not better year. All in all wine is great, but I will wait at least 1 year before opening next one. Hoping to find that smoothness in coming years.
